A fight happening at the SOKY Fair Monday night, has fair officials on extra watch.
Police say it happened at about 10:45.
Two men in their early twenties were leaving the Southern Kentucky Fair, when they say a group of 20 teenagers attacked them.
While they were not seriously injured, Chris Siegrist, SOKY Fair Chairman says he's not taking this situation lightly.
"We have several security guards here overnight that constantly patrol the grounds and are at all the gates to keep things in order," he says.
About 25 security guards will be patrolling the inside of the fair grounds.
"Our security guards are very well trained for such happenings," Siegrist says.
Bowling Green Police will also be responding to any calls if they may need back up.
Fair worker, Bob Rogers, says he sees violence at fairs across the country.
"Well that happens at anywhere you go, there are good people and bad people.. it's just bound to happen when you get all those people around, it's just bound to happen, but generally it's a lot of fun."
"We try to watch people as they come in the gate," Siegrist says, "if they come in with backpacks that seem odd as far as the individual that is carrying them, we ask them to put it back in their vehicle."
Gang violence has concerned some residents, Siegrist says they will be watching for gang colors.
"We've taken many preventative actions to stop that from happening."
He says they haven't had an issue with gangs in the past five years.
The SOKY Fair will be going on through Saturday, they say it is a safe environment for families.
