The Richland County Fair Committee is trying to create the best possible scenario for this year’s fair in light of high water, saturated grounds, and the possibility of more flooding today thanks to heavy rains last night and early this morning. Fair officials have made the following decisions:
- First, there will be NO animal exhibits checked in today. A revised scheduled will be announced at a later time here on WRCO and the Fair Facebook page. When that will be will be dependent on the weather, receding flood waters, and the condition of the grounds.
- Second, the extremely saturated ground has forced the fair committee to cancel the carnival. It would be impossible to safely set up rides and just as difficult to maintain them even if the trucks could enter and exit the fairgrounds.
- Third, all grandstand events are canceled for this year’s fair.
Be listening and watching for the release of a revised schedule for animal project check-in. Once that schedule is determined, officials will then look at how judging can be scheduled and accomplished.
Everyone involved with the Richland County Fair appreciates your help, support and understanding.
Pancakes, sausages, applesauce, and copious amounts of dairy foods are just a few days away!
So mark your calendars for Sunday, June 10 7AM – 1PM.
The Dairy Breakfast will be at the Richland County Fairgrounds on 23630 County Hwy AA – those of you not familiar with the area, watch for the signs in Richland Center.
Cost: $7 for Adults and $3 for kids 10 and under.
Not only can you feed your family for the low price but there are TONS of FREE fun things for the kiddos to do!
