Oklahoma State Fair beginning soon. Warning to nearby beekeepers.

If you live within 3 miles of the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds, Caroline Baker made a very good suggestion:

Start feeding your bees now, and continuously feed them through the end of the State Fair. If they start feeding at the fairgrounds, they are likely to get poisoned

The fair sells LOTS of sweet things (soda, cotton candy, caramel apples, ...). If the bees become a nuisance there, they may be deliberately poisoned. Caroline has lost hives that way before, when she lived near a fairgrounds.
