BAZETTA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – Tuesday was opening night for the 169th annual Trumbull County Fair and already the weather was causing some problems.
The school bus and auto races in the grandstand had to be canceled because of wet conditions. Tuesday afternoon’s rain caused the track to get muddy so they canceled the event for safety.
In the past, the fair has had to deal with rain and muddy conditions. This year, fair officials have arranged for a shuttle to transport fair-goers from the Trumbull Career and Technical Center to the fairgrounds if the parking lots are too muddy.
The fair kicked off Tuesday morning with opening ceremonies. The Trumbull County Fair Board, county commissioners and the county engineer’s department were recognized for their support of the fair.
New to the fair this year are a train display of Warren and a Pink Ribbon garden in honor of breast cancer awareness.
The Trumbull County Fair runs daily through Sunday.
