Fairs, Festivals, & Similar Events Covered by NEC Article 525 and other Associated Articles

The county fair is an event that children and adults look forward to. Often children in rural areas prepare projects, for 4-H all year long, and the county fair is the place where they get to show off their projects. Fair goers seldom realize that the fair may be a dangerous place they could go with their children. Unsafe electrical services, improperly wired electric outlets, and extension cords running across walkways are just a few of the electrical hazards that might be found at some fairs. Many fairs and festivals are in areas where there is no electrical inspection, so the problems are never brought to light.
