KENAI- If you're planning to attend the Kenai Peninsula Fair this weekend in Ninilchik, you might want to leave that pack of cigarettes in the car.
The fair association has made the fairgrounds a smoke-free workplace.
That's in line with the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, which went smokeless in 2011.
Kenai Peninsula Fair Manager Lara McGinnis says in a statement says the move to a smoke-free fair accomplishes three goals.
It affirms a family-friendly atmosphere, reduces the potential for children to associate smoking with a healthy lifestyle, and protects fair workers and attendees from smoking and tobacco related litter and pollution.
For those who must light up, there will be a designated smoking area by the rodeo grounds. The beer garden is also smoker friendly.
