The food, the games, the fun, it's almost time for the 98th Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City.

Crews are setting up nearly 100 rides and inspectors are making sure they're safe. From the moment the trucks arrive, the inspectors watch everything. They get very familiar with the rides, checking each at least 10 to 15 times. If they see something wrong, they tag it with an orange ribbon.

The Oklahoma State Fair starts this Thursday and runs through September 26th in Oklahoma City. For more information go to

And don't forget, the Tulsa State Fair kicks off September 30th.
