Fair Gates Closed On Stars And Bars Foes

600 Sign Petition For Ban

Fair Gates Closed On

Stars And Bars Foes

“We are moved that so many people in our area have the courage to stand up against hate and racism at our fair – and in our area,” Fair for All co-founder Christine Hunt Wood tells 50 supporters at a press conference today outside the gates of the Delaware County Fair in Walton. (Christopher Brown photo)

WALTON – Fifty participants in the Fair for All movement seeking a ban on the sale of Confederate flags at the Delaware County Fair today were barred at the fair gates from delivering a 600-signature petition, according to spokesperson Laura McClure.

When the 50 Fair for All supporters approached the gate, a security guard closed it, said McClure.  Then Ed Rossley, president of the fair board, arrived, told them they could not enter, and declined to accept the petition.   The fair board’s secretary later accepted the document, the spokesperson said.
