Washington County Fair cancels fireworks display

WASHINGTON CO. -- The Washington County Fair cancelled its fireworks display that was scheduled to be shown on Tuesday evening, July 24th.

Officials say with existing drought conditions and an unlikely chance of rain, they "don't want to take any chances to start the Fair off with a catastrophe."

However, other events including the crowning of the Fairest of the Fair, Battle of the Bands and the BOTS IQ are expected to go on as scheduled.

The Washington County Fair runs from Tuesday, July 24th through Sunday, July 29th.
