(PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL) – Officials had to take action over the weekend after fights broke out at the South Florida Fair.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, about 60 people were kicked out of the fair, and four people were arrested Saturday night.

Multiple fights broke out, according to officials. South Florida Fair President and CEO Vickie Chouris said the fighting has to stop. “Bad behavior won’t be tolerated,” she said.

Last year, the South Florida Fair implemented a policy where all guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult on Fridays and Saturdays. Now, fair officials said they will be re-examining that policy.

“Now that this incident has happened, we’re going to look again to see if that’s strong enough,” Chouris said. “If not, we’ll address it and make it even tighter, because it’s the families that we care about coming out and having a good time.”

In addition to the regular security, fair organizers said they have an additional 60 Palm Beach County deputies on hand for added safety.
