Remember when you were a kid and every spring or you'd be so excited to go to your local fair or carnival? Remember the funnel cakes, the cotton candy, the corn dogs that you used to wait for these fairs to have? Those were the days. But now you see and hear about some disturbing trends being introduced into our local fairs. Violence. Over the last few years, I'm sure that most if not all of us have heard about those people who only come to these fairs to start some trouble, or end some dispute. Gangs, indiduals looking to randomly start something at these fairs. Now city officials in Westland MI among others are considering closing these fairs down. Why do some people always have to ruin the fun for other?

Local Fairs. This week. "On-Air"
