Harry Mason, the CEO of Brass Ring Amusements, grew up in Sacramento and has over 42 years in the carnival industry. Mason coined the name ‘Brass Ring’ Amusements while riding the Looff Carousel at the Santa Cruz Fair. As riders circle around the carousel, they approach an arm that holds a small, brass ring. If a rider is able to grab the ring as they whizz by, they may redeem it at the end for a prize. Mason was able to grab the brass ring, but decided to keep it for himself.
That brass ring later turned into much more than a carnival prize. It became the inspiration for his business, and his long-time career in the carnival industry. “We get to impact a lot of people throughout the course of the year, in a positive way. Not a lot of people get to do that,” says Mason.
Pamela Fyock, CEO of Sacramento County Fairs, states, “We are delighted to welcome the Brass Ring Amusements family back to our fair for another year. They always bring in super-safe, quality attractions that are also super-fun and thrilling. Plus fantastic games with cool prizes that are popular with fair-goers, young and old alike.”
