TULSA, Okla. - The Tulsa Health Department will be inspecting food vendors before the state fair opens to make sure they're following state safety regulations.

During the fair, inspectors will be checking each booth about five to six times to ensure vendors are practicing safe guidelines. One of the most important things, according to the health department, is that vendors follow proper handwashing techniques.

The health department will also offer training to vendors who plan to sell alcohol to make sure they're doing it responsibly and legally. Last year, deputies arrested two vendors for selling alcohol to minors.

The Tulsa State Fair starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
