MetraPark officials said Wednesday that all attendees of the upcoming MontanaFair in Billings will be required to wear masks in accordance with Gov. Steve Bullock's new order.

Up until Wednesday, no mask requirement had been planned, but MetraPark spokesman Ray Massie told Q2 after Bullock's news conference that the plan had changed.

Masks will be available for attendees who don't bring their own, he said.

The carnival at MetraPark is set to start early this year on July 24. All MontanaFair concerts, rodeo and motocross events have been canceled, and 4-H events are closed to the public.
