Weather safety at the El Paso County Fair

CALLAHAN, Colo. - The El Paso County Fair kicks off Saturday, and for eight days, visitors can enjoy the food, livestock and carnival rides that the fair has to offer. 

Last year, two people were taken to the hospital after being struck by lightning at the fair. The forecast is showing chances for afternoon showers on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. If lightening strikes, remember to stay indoors and be careful when out and about.
