The Kern County Fair draws in huge crowds each year and officials want everyone to stay safe -- especially young children. Here are some safety precautions officials are taking to ensure everyone's safety.
BAKERSFIELD, CA. - Officials are taking many safety precautions to keep people safe at the Kern County Fair this year.
Sergeant Steve Williams with the Kern County Sheriff's Office says that there will be 20 to 60 deputies there each day.
Williams says one of their biggest concerns is lost children.
They have pathways of yellow duck feet throughout the grounds that lead to the children's lost and found. Tell your children to follow those pathways if they get lost.
Officials also say they will be on the lookout for gang activity. Williams says deputies will be breaking up any congregations of people to prevent fights and violence from starting.
According to officials, they are advising people to keep weapons at home, even if you have a concealed weapons permit.
Only alcohol that is sold on the grounds is allowed.
Williams says if you see anything suspicious, report it to the deputies there.
Cars of all makes, models, and years were front and center at the 2018 Fall Fling Car Show.
