With the Riley County Fair in full swing starting this week, county extension is asking fair goers to be conscious of parking.
Extension Agent Megan Dougherty says they will be rerouting traffic due to the ongoing construction on Kimball Avenue.
The north parking lot off of Kimball will be open only to rodeo contestants, 4-H livestock trailers and VIP pass holders. That lot is only accessible at Avery Avenue off of Kimball. . The south parking lot will be available as always. Members of the Sunflower Lions Club will help direct traffic.
The Kaw Valley Rodeo and carnival will both start Thursday night, with the rodeo ending Saturday night and the carnival ending Monday night.
