What I love about these guys is that they have proven to be one of the easier to contact shows. Thanks Pride of Texas! I look forward to the day that I am able to come to one of your events and do an in-depth review.

    I don’t know if this is going to be read by anyone considering that all these post are from 2009, but I thought I would still give it a shot. I was a carnie myself back in the day, worked for Norman Patterson and The Pride of Texas Shows out of bee ills, TX from 1990-1995, I too concur with most of you that say that being a carnie was the best times of their lives. I had a blast during those 5 yrs, made many friends and met many girls every town we went too, it was awesome! And now, 18yrs later I’m happily married and I have a professional career, I’m an LVN, and in a weird way, I kind of miss the road! Lol

      Yes, this comment is still going to get read 🙂 I know the feeling – It has been a little over 11 years since I left. I miss it sooo much! I often thing that once my daughter grows up, I might try to take a few weeks to travel with a show for old times sake.

    I am with Coryell Creek Critters a 501c Non profit organiation. We host a BBQ Cook-off and Festival every third weekend in July in Gatesville Texas, to raise money for The American Cancer Society. We were thinking about adding a mini carnival (no food) to our event. Is this something you would be interested in? If so please contact me with info and terms.

    We put on a big festival in Mansfield TX in October every year, and I am thinking of adding a carnival to it for 2013. Are you still in business and, if you are, would you be interested in talking to me about this?
