OKLAHOMA CITY – Thousands of Oklahomans are expected to be at the Oklahoma State Fair Friday night.

On a normal weekend, fair officials say they can expect anywhere between 80,000 and 100,000 people.

This Friday, even more crowds are expected.

Fair officials estimated that around 12,000 additional people would show up to greet presidential hopeful Donald Trump.


On Friday evening, Trump was greeted by several fans at Wiley Post Airport after landing around 4 p.m.

“I just love it, I mean there’s so many people out here. I hear we have a big crowd. How many people are over there?” Donald Trump asked NewsChannel 4’s Scott Hines at Wiley Post Airport.

“Thousands,” Hines replied.

“That’s what I hear, thousands,” Trump replied. “We’re having a lot of fun.”

Trump is expected to take the stage at the fair around 6:30 p.m.

We will have live coverage of the speech on NewsChannel 4.
