BILLINGS -

The Mighty Thomas Carnival had a record-breaking sales day on Saturday.

The carnival's president John Hanschen said they sold between 60 to 70,000 individual rides, making Saturday the biggest sales day in its 34-year history at the MontanaFair. He attributes the sales to the heavy traffic on fair grounds and the comfortable weather.

"The fair has a lot of variety, you know, night shows and exhibits and food," he said. "Food's very important. Lots and lots of things to do and it was a beautiful day too." '

Hanschen says not to worry about the rides' heavy use. He said carnival workers inspect the rides throughout the day.
