(WEAU) - Every year the Northern Wisconsin State Fair improves not only entertainment for families but also safety.
"It really helps this year when our vendors come in that they can plug directly into our power boxes without having to tear them apart and directly hook up to the electricity, which is kind of dangerous," said Rusty Volk, Executive Director of Northern Wisconsin State Fair.
The Executive Director says the changes made to power supplies helps generators and vendors.
"They travel across the country and they usually come in their motorhomes and now they can plug into the electrical grids safely, we got water services for them, we even have sewer services on the fairgrounds," said Volk.
Last year, the fairgrounds starting using LED lights for the ferris wheel, which inspired vendors to use less power for games.
"We just did a big sign on the roof of our balloon game and we went LED’s with that and we're slowly going to change everything over to LED’s," said Patrick Hadley, Concessions Manager.
At the same time the Gordy's stage has been re-located from the carnival area to the opposite side of the fair, in hopes to spread people throughout the grounds.
"We had some challenges with it being too noisy and the entertainers didn't have a good opportunity to present themselves," said Volk.
"It can never be good enough for us. We always want to improve it one way or another," said Hadley.
