Safety enhancements are being made for next month’s 2022 Wisconsin State Fair. The changes include vehicle barriers similar to the ones added to the parade routes in Waukesha after last year’s Christmas Parade tragedy. Fairgoers will be limited to carrying bags of nine-by-10-by-12 inches or smaller – though there will be exceptions for diaper bags, items for infants, or for medical needs. All bags will be subject to inspection at the fair which starts August 4th. Metal detectors will be present at every State Fair Park entrance. The fair will run for 11 days, ending on Sunday, August 14th.
