Games Galore Party Rental has announced a partnership with Murphy Brothers Exposition to provide midway entertainment. Gerald Murphy, Murphy Brothers Chairman, said, “We’re looking forward to having Games Galore included with the great Murphy Brothers midway. Combining the inflatables and the new Mega Pass will appeal to all age groups.” The reason for the partnership stemmed from a growing number of requests. “Fair board members throughout the upper midwest have requested numerous times that they would like carnivals and inflatable companies to work together to provide the midway atmosphere,” said Dave Lerud, President of Games Galore.
Games Galore will provide the inflatables for fairs throughout North Dakota including West Fargo, Bottineau, Devils Lake, Grand Forks, Minot and Pembina and Wells counties. The state fairs in New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Wisconsin will have the Games Galore inflatables as a part of their midway.
Lerud predicts that the inflatable games trend for town festivals and carnivals will continue to grow. “We are seeing more and more civic organizations switch from traditional carnival games to inflatable games,” Lerud said. “Today’s families are more attracted to the active-style games rather than sit-down games.” Games Galore has also seen this trend carry over to events they have hosted for schools, churches, businesses and private parties.
