TULSA – For 11 days, the Tulsa State Fair says it plans to feature new food, music and rides while also maintaining a welcoming environment for everyone. 

The Tulsa State Fair says it will offer a methods of identification to help those with autism feel more welcome at the fair.

The Autism Friendly Locations website offers shirts, wristbands or even hats wit the logo “We’re A OK,” but it is not clear whether or not the fair will offer these items or have its business patrons wear them.

"By bringing attention to autism and the needs of individuals and families, these individuals can put some of their worries aside, and feel confident that they are a welcomed patron, who is valued and accepted," says the fair's website.
