“This is just typical Stock Show weather,” said Trish Thompson, Grace’s mother. “It’s a tradition to come out here, no matter how cold.”
Thompson said she will always remember coming to the Stock Show as a child and sloshing around in sleet and ice.
Jeff Parlow, manager for Talley Amusements, said the Midway closed down Thursday and Friday because of the weather.
Saturday, the hoses were still frozen so food vendors could not open. Also, many of the rides were closed because those with hydraulics do not work as well in the cold, Parlow said.
“We’re trying anyway,” he said.
