(HUTCHINSON, Kan.) — It takes two days and a lot of people to unload and put together the grandstand stage at the Kansas State Fair.
The stage will host several bands the next couple weeks, attracting thousands of music fans like Chris Bairow and his family.
"I was going to go the Kenny Rogers I think it was that was coming out here," Bairow says.
This place is supposed to be all about fun. But in Indiana last month the fun turned tragic when a storm blew over during a concert and the stage and killed seven people.
"That's crazy man I wouldn't want to be involved in that situation," Bairow says.
The stage design and setup are much different here, however the tragedy in Indiana did force Kansas State Fair officials to pause and re-evaluate exactly how they stage concerts.
