SEDALIA, Mo. — The Missouri State Fair Commission and staff have in their thoughts and prayers those impacted by the tragic accident Wednesday at the Ohio State Fair.
The Missouri State Fair (MSF) takes seriously the safety of the fairgoing public. MSF complies with all regulations established by Missouri Department of Public Safety and welcomes their inspectors on the carnival midway. Regulations can be found here: http://dfs.dps.mo.gov/programs/amusement/
In addition to meeting required safety regulations, the MSF also requires that a third party, nationally-certified carnival ride inspector is on the fairgrounds throughout the entire fair overseeing ride safety.
Although the ride involved in the accident in Ohio has been popular at carnivals across the country, it will not be at the 2017 Missouri State Fair.
