The Dyer County fairgrounds may only have a few rides being put together at the moment, but by Monday it will be filled with rides, games, displays and other attractions.
Fairgoers will be able to get a bird's-eye view of the fairway once the Ferris wheel is assembled. The original Ferris wheel was built by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. It was a landmark at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. In 1904, it was moved to St. Louis, Mo. for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.
Myers International Midways workers hoist a link to the Ferris wheel at the Dyer County fairgrounds. An employee said it only takes about 3 to 4 hours to assemble the ride if everything goes right.
