We got the word last week from Carter Shows that the fair would not be stopping in Wallaceburg this year.

Some people were not too happy about it.

Heather on Facebook said: “Well that sucks was gonna bring boys there but guess not thanks wallaceburg.”

Ryan on Facebook said: “I’m sure it had something to do with Chatham needing something more importantly. They probably didn’t even book the parking lot for carter shows to begin with.”

Amy on Facbook said: “Just as I suspected…. There are going to be many disappointed kids this year… Good job Wallaceburg.”

Alissa on Facebook said: “I am happy it is cancelled it is nothing but a waste of money i would rather see Wallaceburg put more emphasis and effort in to bringing wambo back tp what it was ten yrs ago then a stupid fair.”

Joe Ann on Facebook said: “This really sucks.There is nothing for the kids to do and now they even take the fair from them.I enjoy seeing all the kids getting together and having fun.I also enjoy wambo but as far as my little guy there is nothing there for him to do .Wambo seems more towards adults and teens but what about the kids that are younger.”

Misty on Facebook said: “That is ridiculous … I feel for the families that have no way to go to other fairs …”

Cody on Facebook said: “That’s bullsh*t!”
