Residents of the Southern Tier are hoping to end the sale of Confederate flags at the Delaware County Fair

08.14.17 | Bob Price

The group Fair for All rallied at the entrance of the fair yesterday.

State police forced the group off the fairgrounds.
Fair for All members say the modern "Stars and Bars" has no place at a public event, because "it represents a history of violence towards people of color."

Extra police will be on standby at the fairgrounds in Walton in case there's a Confederate flag flap.

Supporters of the "Stars and Bars" say the banner is about celebrating southern heritage, not promoting hate.
