FAIRBANKS -- The Tanana Valley State Fair is going smoke-free.

Randi Carnahan, general manager of the Tanana Valley Fair Association, told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that fair organizers listened to the community when making the decision to go smoke-free.

Fairgoers will not be banished to the parking lot to do their smoking. Three designated smoking areas have been evenly spaced throughout the fairgrounds.

The fair opens on Friday.
