2010 Sky Glider Incident ◦ Our fans and followers told us that we should have been updating them via social media about what was going on ◦ Great learning experience ◦ Be timely and be honest 2011 Opening Night Violence ◦ No way to update people during the incident (outside of our grounds, weren’t aware until next morning) ◦ Did use Facebook and Twitter to get the word out about the new admission policy ◦ Also used social media to RESPOND to complaints, questions, etc.
Why hasn't state fair made a public recognition on this page as to what happened last night. I want to know what will be done to prevent this from happening again. As for going I am sad to say my family will not be there. I will not subject my family to this. I will be returning to the state fair tomorrow without a second thought. As to why there hasn't been a public announcement on Facebook, give it some time. They can't just make a post willy nilly. This is a public relations disaster and some thought needs to be given to what they want to, and should, say. And it's only the morning after here. they have to figure out how to make it sound like it was an isolated incident.........even though it started at 7pm, and lasted past 1am in the surrounding communities. Do you really think they are going to tell you something bad happened, hell no, they are going to cover it up with cream puffs I hope the security there is multiplied after last night....I'm considering not even going there anymore after that and I already purchased 4 tickets...very disappointed. Seems the story's get worse every year. :/ cancelled my Wisconsin State Fair Plans due to safety concerns!! What are my friends doing instead???Wisconsin State Fair
