  • Guests shall enjoy the Fair free from disruptive behavior, including foul or offensive language or obscene gestures.
  • Guests shall not engage in activities that could endanger others, including but not limited to fighting, engaging in intimidating, disorderly or disruptive behavior. Guests who engage in any of these actions shall immediately be ejected from the Fairgrounds.
