TULSA, Okla. — For the past several weeks, organizers of the Tulsa State Fair have been setting up for this year's event that's expected to attract more than a million people.

Even the recent rain hasn't stopped the vendors from making sure everything runs smoothly.

On Wednesday morning, the Oklahoma Department of Labor will be on the fairgrounds inspecting the rides. It's one of the states that require inspection before amusement rides begin operation.

There are more than 60 rides this year for both kids and adults.

Food is another major attraction that is not being overlooked.

Inspectors from the Tulsa Health Department started their rounds on the more than 230 booths on Tuesday.

If you're looking to try something new, there are more than 25 unique items to choose from.

"We've got a new bacon mac n cheese empanada, a baja dog, a pickled dog and a really unique one this year is going to be pickle ice cream," said Amanda Blair, Chief Operating Officer of the Expo Square.

Also, there are dozens of music artists who'll be performing on stage this year. That includes Ginuwine, Chris Janson and Whiskey Myers.
