Backwards horse at Grange Fair is a tribute

TIM WEIGHT/FOR THE EXPRESS

If you’ve seen a backwards horse on the carousel at the Grange Fair in Centre Hall, you’re not alone. The backwards horse isn’t a mistake. In fact, it’s by design. It pays tribute to the founder of Garbrick Amusements, Lewis “Jack” Garbrick, who died earlier this year. A sign on the horse reads: “A carnie tradition to honor the passing of the showman. We at Garbrick Amusements mourn our founder.”

Lewis “Jack” Garbrick died on May 6. He was 93 years old. Another sign reads: “He will be missed by many. If you have a good Jack memory, please share with us.” The Grange Fair continues through Saturday in Centre Hall.
