Traffic gridlock complicates opening weekend at Kentucky State Fair

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The first weekend of the Kentucky State Fair caused several hours of bumper to bumper traffic.

Several drivers took to social media, complaining that it took hours to get in, including WDRB's own Chris Sutter. 

Some just turned around and went home.

A fair board spokesperson said it's opening weekend and it was a gorgeous Saturday, so there were a lot of people trying to get in.

She said there are four other gates besides gate one. But if you don't want to deal with traffic, park for free at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium and take the shuttle.
