  1. A ride operator overdoses on heroin. A teenager rapes a 9-year-old girl. Both take place at an event that’s supposed to be one of the most wholesome places you can take your kids? Yikes.

  2. The fair is more about the rides there’s also exhibits .from the 4-H kids who have worked hard on their things there’s the animals if u don’t feel.comfortable about the rides go see the other things at the fair in my option the rides are over priced anyway there’s also the music and all the animal showing etc besides it’s not the fair fault the person overdosed it’s a company that is brought in that company should be responsible of the employees

  3. Maryland State Fair is one of the worst in the Country, many Maryland Agricultural exhibitors chose either the Delaware State Fair or stay with their local County Fair. Basically TImonium just becomes a Carnival setting catering to Baltimore and surrounding counties.
