Group Pushing State Fair Smoking Ban

Associated Press - May 18, 2015 7:16 am

The Kansas State Fair is being asked to consider banning smoking throughout the fair grounds.

A Reno County youth group called Communities That Care has twice discussed its research and ideas on a smoking ban with the state fair board, which will consider the request Tuesday.

Smoking is currently not allowed in the fair buildings or in the grandstand seating area. The youth group wants the fair board to expand that ban to the entire grounds, saying it would create a healthier environment for fairgoers.

Fair manager Denny Stoecklein says the board has to consider that about 20 percent – or 78,000 fairgoers each year – are smokers. He says other issues are accommodating vendors who smoke and how to enforce the ban.
