Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) In years past the Twin Falls County Fair has designated a single day as smoke free day out at the fairgrounds.
But this year was a different story.
All week long was smoke free out at the fair.
Now that doesn't mean smokers weren't allowed to light up.
All over the fairgrounds were smoking zones where smokers were allowed to do their thing.
With the fairgrounds technically being county property, smoking within the buildings has always been prohibited.
But fair officials felt that limiting the smoking in general areas was best for the fair.
“We do this because… you know, there is more and more people allergic to cigarette smoke but it’s also juts a lot less people smoking and they don’t want to be exposed to second hand smoke… as well as creating an environment where we got designated places where people can go smoke if they want.”
Said John Pits, Twin Falls County Fair Manager
The entire week of a smoke free fair was sponsored by Project Filter.
