Friday night at the fair

Tonight my husband and I took our almost 3 month old son to the fair, along with my brother and a family friend. We arrived at about 10:30 and were forced to leave around 12 due to a riot going on between about 6 different black kids(when I say kids, I mean teenagers 15-19 if not older) They were running around screaming, not caring who or what was in their way, a staff member there grabbed our young son and took him behind a booth in fear for his safty. This didn't only happen once, the first time it was broken up, about 2 minutes later started up again, and yet again it just got worse from there. These kids were not forced to leave even though innocent bistanders could have easily gotten got up in all the drama; When we approached a security guard, he just looked at us with nothing to say, I was in panic crying wanting to leave, unable to get out of the gates because this riot was to dangerous to try to pass, and to large to walk aroung. Finally someone escorted us to the gates. When we called the number for the fair and expo to get a refund for our money OR be able to get in free tomorrow(during the day) they told us "they didn't know what to tell us" We spent 56 dollars for 4 people to get in, rode 3 rides and had to leave, in fear for our sons safty as well as our own. I just don't understand why there wasn't security around to help, or why when we approached them no one did anything? I strongly suggest posting this story on your morning news, parents SHOULD NOT take their children there, it's not right, but it's better then something happening to them. We shouldn't be unable to take our children out to do something in fear of your life being endangered, that's why we have law enforcement officers, which the fair is lacking this year.
