I will be taking the boys back to the State Fair again soon. I hope the numbers will show that a lot of Minnesotans are doing the same thing from now until Labor Day. It is always a time of eating a lot, checking out the different types of booths, and enjoying the amusement rides. The downside of having a father who does what I do is, is that I have seen to many cases where the rides are either improperly maintained or poorly staffed. So I probably am a little too over protective, but the piece of mind is worth it.

Others here at the Injuryboard have pointed out some of the worst situations:

Injuryboard members from Florida have a number of posts about this issue. I like this one a lot:

I hope for another safe and happy fair for all involved.
