You're asked to dress for a family-friendly atmosphere if you attend the Richland County Fair next week. But fair officials are holding-off on enforcing a dress code.

The Richland County Fair Board wants to implement a dress code prohibiting some types of clothing and manners of dress. Fair Board President Bill Rieman says that includes shirts with profane language, and sagging pants with underwear showing. But the dress code is on hold for this year's fair, until it's determined to be legal.

Rieman says the sheriff's department can't enforce it until the prosecutor's office determines it's legal, and fair-goers' civil rights and freedom of expression would not be violated. So come as you are, but you might be asked politely to change. If you refuse, Rieman says there's nothing they can do but let you in.
