TULSA — The Tulsa State Fair begins Thursday. The fair food is one of the biggest draws to the fair. The Tulsa Health Department is working hard to make sure you don't get sick from any of it.

There are more than 230 food and beverage vendors at the fair this year. The Tulsa Health Department is going to each one to make sure they are clean and ready to go. They are also checking to make sure the trailers have the proper water and sewer connections.

"After that, they can begin their preparation and their food manipulation and get everything ready for Thursday," said Ashley Davis, mobile inspector for the Tulsa Health Department. "Not only are we checking stands, we're checking their backstock trailers and anything off property that's also going to be consumed by the public."

Each booth will get a neon sticker in its window once it passes inspection. The health department is checking each booth multiple times throughout the fair to make sure they stay clean.

The health department asks that if you do happen to get sick, be sure to let them know. Their office is in the Exchange Building at the fairgrounds.
