Food, rides draw crowds for final days at Oklahoma State Fair

As the Oklahoma State Fair comes close to ending, the event often sees a rush as people show up for the festivities before it’s over, volunteers and fairgoers said.

Denise Thomas, fair volunteer from Oklahoma City, said that on the last couple days of the fair it appears more crowded.

"I’ve volunteered for the last three years and every year it seems as though the most people come on the last couple days,” Thomas said Saturday.

"I’ve been to the fair this year three times already and will probably come back again tomorrow on the last day,” said Scott Evans of Kansas City, Kan. "Me and all of my friends travel down here just to be a part of Oklahoma’s big event and to hang out with one of my Sooner buddies.”

Betty Snider of Dallas said the attendance from people living in different states may be similar to in-state attendees.

"I used to live in Tulsa but moved to Dallas years ago and still travel back for the fair,” she said. "I know many people that come from Missouri, Texas and Kansas to attend the fair because the atmosphere, as well as food, is so good.”
