bulkley valley exhibitionThe best midway in BC is coming back to Smithers! The 2017 Bulkley Valley Exhibition will see Shooting Star Amusements continue bringing its kids fun, thrill rides and midway games to the awesome interior town of Smithers. And beyond!

Because the BVX and Shooting Star have signed a multi-year contract, continuing the midway company’s already 15-year-old sponsorship of this great event.

“The whole team at Shooting Star is absolutely pumped to be coming back to Smithers again and again,” said Shooting Star President Joe Medeiros. “My wife, Brenda, and I have treasured our relationship with the Bulkley Valley’s people, and we’re so excited we can keep treasuring it for a long time to come”.

Miles and Miles of Smiles

We’re all smiling broadly at Shooting Star, but not as broadly as the kids who come to enjoy our midway.
