Colorado State Fair Getting Under Way

View Comments


PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — The 140-year-old Colorado State Fair is getting under way.

Beginning Friday, fair participants will get a chance to see Colorado agriculture, arts and crafts, food competitions, music and a rodeo. There will also be a Fiesta Day featuring Colorado’s Hispanic culture.

This year, animals are getting tighter security following a food-tampering issue last year that led to the disqualification of two goats, including one that won grand champion.

Officials say the animals ate tainted feed that had been placed in their pens during the fair. The goats were later disqualified after testing for a banned substance.
