What Carnival Company is that in Port Coquitlam?

April 27, 2012

Leigh-Square-Train-300x176Many years ago a small number of our Carnival Rides were set up at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam. In those years there was only room for five carnival rides tucked into the square and down the back alleys of Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam, BC. After the parade was over, we saw many families come and enjoy our whimsical kiddie rides.

Just down the road at the arena West Coast Amusements had their Carnival rides set up for the PoCo May Days Celebration weekend. This was quite a unique situation in the Amusement Industry. It’s very rare for two Amusement Companies to work in two locations just a block away from each other — rare but certainly not impossible.

This year, our Carnival Midway Company will make a debut performance in Port Coquitlam in the Arena parking lot at 2150 Wilson Avenue and we will be the new Midway provider for Poco May Days!

Poco-Best-Zipper-Daytime-300x225Shooting Star Amusements will not only be bringing our delightful kiddie rides but also our daredevil rides like the Zipper and more. Why not save on fuel, walk to the Arena, watch the parade on Saturday and support your community event !

Enjoy all new rides that have never been to Poco May Days before. Our Midway company has a great variety of amusement rides for every member of the family. Including the chilling and thrilling Zipper Ride!

Some of the most amazing photos we have captured on film were taken at our Father’s Day event when the Dad’s ride free at the Point Grey Fiesta in Vancouver, BC.

P.S. For my Own Mom: I’m sorry Mom but I have to work on Mother’s Day this year…but I have a good idea…why don’t you come down and hang out with us. You and I can take a ride together on the Zipper on Sunday, I’ll buy! 🙂 Love you Mom and Mama Maria too!
