CWFR Staff Address Water Concerns

A complaint over a lack of water at the fairgrounds drew a lot of attention earlier this week.

A video posted on Facebook showing nothing coming out of a water fountain, quickly went viral in the area.

Fairgoers have not been allowed to bring food or water onto the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds for several years, but staff say they can bring empty water bottles and fill them.

Fair staff say only the one water fountain was down, because it was clogged with gum and chewing tobacco.

Fair General Manager Tom Jones told News 13 Monday, “If people have trouble with stuff like that just come and see us we will take care of it immediately we want their best experience to be here and we're going to make it that way."

Jones encouraged everyone to stay hydrated with hot temperatures throughout this week.
