The Ferris Wheel Is Returning To Peterborough Ex

Organizers of the Peterborough Ex have contracted Magical Midways to be their midway operator for this summer’s Peterborough Ex, which runs August 8th-11th at Morrow Park.

Peterborough Ex attendees can expect to see a new mix of rides for thrill-seekers, families and little children—and the always-popular Ferris Wheel will be making a return.

“We’ve been hearing that Peterborough has been looking for more variety and better value from our midway,” says Ryan Moore, President of the Peterborough Agricultural Society, which runs the Ex. “Magical Midways has a wide selection of midway games and rides that we are excited to be bringing to this year’s Ex.”

The family-run operator has been providing midway fun for three generations and have been involved in fairs and exhibitions throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes.
