70th Middletown Grange Fair

The Fair welcomes back

Skelly's Amusements

for the 62nd year!

Joseph Skelly, the show’s founder, started Skelly’s Amusements in 1956. One evening on his way home from work, he noticed a truck mounted Merry-Go-Round for sale; an idea was born. He borrowed some money to buy the ride and soon put it to work. He would come home from his job as a bookbinder and after a quick dinner, would drive the Merry-Go-Round through the streets of Darby, Pennsylvania, charging 10 cents a ride. It had 8 tiny horses that he would push around by hand while music played.

By the early 60’s, more equipment had been added and a route of church carnivals had been established. Most of the events were in New Jersey, thus in 1965, the company moved to Pine Hill, New Jersey.

Over fifty years later, Skelly’s Amusements is now located in Williamstown, New Jersey. Tom O’Connor and Michael Skelly own the company. It has grown to a 25-ride operation providing fun for fairs, carnivals and festivals in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Gone are the truck mounted and gas driven rides of the past; in their place are trailer mounted, computer controlled machines designed for intense thrill and extreme safety. The ride operators are trained and the inspections are documented. Skelly’s Amusements is committed to providing safe, fun family entertainment with the cleanest rides, game and food concessions available.
