Deep fried pickles, cheesecake, pumpkin balls, ice cream, candy bars, and kool-aid. That’s right, even kool-aid can be deep fried.

Every year, state inspectors from the Labor Department look over rides and scan operators’ paperwork. Labor Commissioner Mark Costello says there are five inspectors here, with two on duty at all times the rides are operational during the entire run of the fair.</p><p style="margin-left:-.5in;">Costello says there are federal regulations governing carnival ride safety, but Oklahoma also has what he calls some of the highest standards in the country.</p> Wed, 26 Sep 2012 18:23:35 +0000 Marshall Stewart 26857 at http://publicradiotulsa.org State Inspectors Check Tulsa State Fair Rides
