Arapahoe County, Colorado — After many COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, crowds are eager to attend outdoor events. However, Saturday’s Arapaho County Fair was not an option for many.
The fair organizer closed the gate at 8 pm and dismissed the ticket holder after the fair ground reached capacity on Saturday night.
Saturday night’s Arapaho County Fair attended more than 14,500 people. It was one of the largest crowds in the history of the fair and had to end the event for the first time due to the large number of people gathered.
“We were like’the fairground was closed’? I said,’All the vehicles are still going on, so they’re never closed. I still see all the vehicles spinning. It was like, “said 17-year-old Kylie Martin.
She was probably one of the hundreds of people who turned away from Saturday’s fair night.
“It’s about 8 o’clock, how many people are already on the premises, how many people are waiting for them to come in … All public security officials and fair officers have decided. People just for everyone’s safety. It makes more sense to stop putting in. “
In other words, Kylie and her friends couldn’t enter even though they had purchased the tickets in advance.
“She called and asked for a refund and was told,’No, come tomorrow.’ Well, she can’t go tomorrow, “said Kylie’s mother, Joet Martin.
The Martins had no choice but to dispute the bank after learning that they could not get a refund. The fair’s website states that tickets are non-refundable and will be held in the rain.
“No refunds are possible. It’s included in the ticket disclaimer. We feel sick about it. We’re looking for someone to make up for it later,” Hatlestad said.
The organizers recommended returning to those who turned their backs on Saturday night on Sunday, when the final day of the fair will be held until 11:00 pm.
The county says it will review everything that happened this weekend to ensure that next year’s trade fair goes smoothly.
