We're just 18 days away from the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo. We've been told more than 600 workers have been hired and more than 600 vendors have rented space.
With only a few weeks until the gates open crews are setting up arts and crafts, paving parking lots and getting everything ready. "There are 57 buildings on the fairgrounds, ranging from a little ticket booth to the events center. During the fair we have maintenance people assigned to those buildings as well as security people assigned to those buildings, so there's a lot to get ready for," said Chris Wiseman, the fair's general manager.
The Colorado State Fair runs August 26 through September 5.
