Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - While there are ways to cool down, several people are stuck working in some of the fair's hottest spots.
While it's in the 90s outside, some of the vendors are manning hot grills or working inside food trucks without much ventilation. That makes temperatures surrounding them much higher compared to those on the street.
One hot business that brings some of the warmest working conditions is the well-known kettle corn stand. Popping, steaming, and sizzling with workers sweating to keep up with customers.
Blake Reed, Tasty Kettle Corn Owner: “It really doesn't matter what the temperature is, cause even if its 80 or 90 degrees outside, it's usually 120 in the tent. So we don't even notice it. It doesn't matter how hot it is.”
Reed says they keep fans running all the time and have plenty of drinks so his employees say hydrated.
