A Facebook post is circulating regarding the safety of rides on the fairgrounds.
This was reported to the Hardin County Fair Board as well as the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office which responded immediately. Durant Amusements leadership was contacted immediately about the complaint. The Sheriff’s office investigated, concluded there was a minor incident after hours well after the ride setup was completed.
The Sheriff’s office turned the investigation over to the ride company. Durant Amusement has assured the board that there is no concern with the safety and operations of the ride.
The rides have already been inspected Monday evening, and will be inspected again Tuesday morning by the ride company before being inspected by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
