The Hardin County Fair Board is suing Spectacular Amusements for not showing up at the 2019 Hardin County Fair and not returning a $10,000 down payment. A bouncy slide and bouncy castle were secured by organizers from a different company at the last minute. No mechanical rides were at the fair.

The Hardin County Agricultural Society, also known as the Hardin County Fair, filed a lawsuit last week in Iowa District Court against Spectacular Amusements for breach of contract.

According to the lawsuit, the parties entered into a "Carnival Contract" in December of 2018 in which Spectacular Amusements, based in Arkansas, promised to "furnish a carnival with rides, games and concessions to the City of Eldora, County of Hardin, State of Iowa for the dates of July 10-14, 2019."
