Watonwan County Fair canceled

By an 11-6 vote, the Watonwan County Fair Board recently canceled this year's county fair.

Don Craig, who chairs the Watonwan County Fair Board, said his board's vote occurred the day before news broke of the state fair's cancellation. However, his board had received word that the cancellation was likely to occur.

"We went ahead and canceled before we spent a lot on advertising and everything else," Craig said. "Our fair dates were supposed to be July 15-19."

Of course the COVID-19 pandemic also played a major role in the cancellation.
