My wife and I had planned to attend the Mississippi Valley Fair this year. We hadn't been there for a long time. We drove to the fairgrounds and looked for a place to park. We finally found a handicapped parking place close to the gate.|
We bought our tickets and walked in. We were going to look at the livestock building first that was on the other side of the fairgrounds: A long walk.
There were about 20 golf carts with security guards riding around. We asked them if we could get a ride. They said no can do. We walked around, saw the sites, got something to eat and drink.
About three hours later, we started back to our car which was parked next to the gate. The guard said I was given orders not to open this gate. You will have to walk to the next one. We had to walk to the next gate and then back to where our car was parked which was where we started from. That was a very long walk for us.
I saw on the television that some handicapped people complained to the fairgrounds director that some of his employees were disrespectful. The fair director fired them. He set the rules. He should have been dismissed. Maybe next year will be different.
