Will County Fair

Fairbook Dedications

The 2021 Fair Book is dedicated to Luehrs’ Ideal Rides, in celebration of 60 years at the Will County Fair!

It all started with the love and marriage of Hub and Winnie Luehrs in 1938.
A few concessions, 1 bingo game, and 1 ride later, it has turned into a family
Business that has withstood the test of time.


Hub went on to purchase Ideal Rides in 1956, and Luehrs Ideal Rides was born!
To this day it is still a family business run by Hub and Winnies daughters and their husbands. Lorelei & Andy Schodienst, and Jean & Joe Clair.
With the next generation starting to take the wheel.


60 years ago, Hub Luehrs started working the with the Will County Fair providing carnival rides and concessions. Since then they have not only become close friends, but like family.
A working relationship going back decades, providing a clean, friendly, and fun environment for kids of all ages. We can not forget about the yummy treats, with anything from corn dogs to elephant ears, and funnel cakes to fulfill all your cravings. Luehrs has been sure to keep our fairgoers and families happy for generations.


The Board of Directors would like to say Thank You, and Congratulations to Luehrs Ideal Rides for 60 years of working together, with many more to come.
