Farmland, IN – May 25, 2018  –  North American Midway Entertainment (NAME), LLC, the largest operator of mobile amusement parks in North America, was sold to North American Fairs, LLC, an entity owned by Danny Huston, one of the original owners.  NAME was acquired by Townsquare Media, Inc. in 2015.  Townsquare Media, Inc. is a leading diversified media and entertainment company.  NAME will continue to direct the business as usual, with its headquarters in Farmland, Indiana, and all management and operations remain intact.
