OKLAHOMA CITY – The countdown is on for Donald Trump’s appearance at the Oklahoma State Fair.

Today, thousands of people from across the state are expected to crowd around the Bandshell Stage to see the presidential hopeful speak.

The event is open to the public.

Fair officials told NewsChannel 4 that, on an average Friday night, about 60-80,000 people visit the fair grounds.

So, they figure an additional 12,000 or so should not be a problem.
