Just a few days from now, Donald Trump will take the stage at the Oklahoma State Fair.

Already, Oklahoma City Police are preparing for what's sure to be a packed event.

Captain Paco Balderrama said there is always an increased police presence at the Fair, but Trump's visit will have officers on high alert for anything suspicious.

"People in the crowd, some undercover officers, you're not even going to know they are there. Just keeping tabs on people, making sure that everything's safe, there's nothing out of the ordinary," Balderrama said.

Thousands have already signed up for the chance to see Trump and hear what he has to say.

Despite a large crowd expected to gather near the Band-Shell stage where Trump will speak, fair organizers said it's business as usual.

"The band shell stage is not all that large, so its relatively limited as far as being able to accommodate a large crowd, but we'll do what we can to accommodate the people that come out," said Scott Munz, president of the Oklahoma State Fair.

No matter which way you may lean politically or what you think about the controversy surrounding some of Trump's policies, folks are still interested in what he might say next.

Oklahoma is no exception.

Other than the cost of a State Fair ticket, it's free to see Trump at the Band-Shell stage.

Trump is scheduled to arrive around 5:30 p.m. Friday and take the stage to speak around 6:30 p.m.
