Dale and Kevin
It was an incredible experience for me. The quality of food was only matched by the quality of service I received. The popcorn machines brought back fond memories of my parents taking my brother, sister and I to the fair as a child.
Thank you so much for making my dream of experiencing an old family past-time once again a reality. It truly was an unforgettable one.
