Games Galore partners with Murphy Brothers at RR Valley Fair

Games Galore Party Rental, Fargo, and Murphy Bros. Exposition, Tulsa, Okla., have signed a contract for the upcoming fair season, according to Dave Lerud, President of Games Galore Party Rental. Visitors to the 2010 Red River Valley Fair scheduled for July 9 through July 17 at the Fairgrounds in West Fargo, can expect to enjoy inflatable games and mechanical rides again this year. The continued partnership demonstrates a shift in public perceptions about the carnival experience.

"We are seeing more and more civic organizations switch from traditional carnival games to inflatable games," says David Lerud, owner of Games Galore Party Rental. "Today's families are more attracted to the active-style games rather than sit-down games."

Jerry Murphy, of Murphy Bros. Expositions, said "Dave Lerud and his professional operations have traveled with the Murphy Brothers Carnival circuit this pass year and did an outstanding service to the fair patrons at the North Dakota State Fair, Wisconsin State Fair, New Mexico State Fair and Oklahoma State Fair. I'm looking forward to another safe and successful season."
