“We’re going to light this place up like a Christmas tree best we can back there in the parking lot area where this happened so hopefully it never, ever happens again,” Blair said. “We hated that this happened.”
The fair board decided to keep on track lights, whether or not an event is scheduled for that area, and to bring in several light towers.
“The Clark County Fair Board has been nothing but supportive, and they’re out there with us all the way,” Reynolds told the News-Sun. “We want this to be a family-oriented event.”
Fairgoers who witness unsafe behavior can report it to fair management and law enforcement. Fairgoers also can call 937-328-2560 or 937-521-3287 to report threatening behavior, but in emergency situations, attendees should dial 911.
The sheriff’s office is investigating the reported attacks.
“Keep your eyes and ears open,” Blair said.
