That is the moment marking exactly one year since a deadly stage collapse killed seven people.
For four minutes, rides stopped. Shuttle buses did not move and concession stand music was turned off.
Outside the grandstand, there was a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims.
They were killed when high winds caused stage rigging to collapse onto a crowd of fans waiting for a concert by Sugarland.
The accident led to sweeping overhauls of the fair's emergency plan and new regulations for temporary stages.
