While more people attended the 2014 Kansas State Fair than in previous years, officials say fewer people are buying tickets to watch events in the 90-year-old grandstand.

While more people attended the 2014 Kansas State Fair than in previous years, officials say fewer people are buying tickets to watch events in the 90-year-old grandstand.

A 74-year-old man is recovering from an accident at the Kansas State Fair that put him in the hospital.

Valley Falls resident Earl Stevens suffered broken facial bones and other injuries in the accident two weeks ago.

Stevens and his family camp at the fair every year for a long weekend.

Stevens was on a sidewalk that crosses in front of a zip line operated by a community college program. Stevens was hit by a zip line rider. The rider wasn’t hurt, but Stevens was hospitalized in Wichita with injuries including a concussion, a broken nose and sore ribs.

After the accident, the fair and the college barricaded the walkway so people couldn’t cross in front of the ride.
