Another Year, Another Tulsa State Fair; Tear Down Begins
Another year, and another Tulsa State Fair has come and gone.
President of Expo Square, Mark Andrus says the fairgrounds served as a "giant city" to about a million people over the past 11 days.
But now, it pretty much looks like a wasteland.
Teardown began Monday on all the rides, exhibits and concession stands.
Along the midway, everything has to go no later than Friday morning.
And inside the QuikTrip Center there's a major rush.
The deadline for vendors is Monday night because of the Arabian Horse Show.
Andrus said, "This is Monday. So starting tomorrow morning at 10am, there will be a load of dump trucks to pour dirt. We have to build 1,300 stalls and three exercise arenas in the that same place starting tomorrow."
Organizers credit the success of the Fair to our fabulous fall weather.
They say, it only rained briefly on Saturday.
