Fair eliminates handicap parking at grandstand
Placeholder Image
Breaking from a long-standing tradition, handicap parking will no longer be allowed at the Warren County A&L Fair around Grandstand Arena.Due to a policy change that goes into effect this year, no handicap parking will be allowed inside the fair gates anywhere on the grounds.“It’s a safety issue,” said fair board member Regan Kelsey, who oversees parking. “What we want to emphasize is we’re not eliminating handicap spots, we’re just relocating them. We want people who come to the fair to be able to walk around, have a good time, and not worry about getting hit by a car.”In previous years, people with a handicap parking placard would be allowed to drive through the main entrance and either park inside the horse ring or around it.
