Bull delays fireworks at Marion County Fair


Jul. 6, 2011

Written by James Steven

MARION, OH -- What a bunch of bull.No, really.An animal incident stalled the fireworks Monday night.
"Well, I backed up away from it when it started coming at me," said Scott Croskey, the director of fireworks for the 161st Marion County Fair.
He was facing a bull, one that didn't want to jump back into his pen after the rodeo show. There was no damage, just a delay of about 20 minutes to the show.
"Not sure how it got out," Croskey said. "But it got out."


That was just part of the excitement. The fair runs through Saturday at he Marion County Fairgrounds.
There are more than a dozen rides brought in by Bates Amusement Co., including a handful of the kiddie rides. There's a $12 all-you-can-ride wrist band, and rides open at noon, except for today. It's Kid's Day, when rides open at 10 a.m. and ages 12 and younger get in free from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tripp said the attendance was great for the first day, about 4,000 plus ... plus one.
"I'd run the other way," Tripp said about the bull. "Wouldn't you?"
