Wet weather causes Columbia County Fair to close tonight

GROVETOWN, GA (WFXG) - The Columbia County Fair won't be open Friday night due to wet weather, fair officials said.

Rain Friday caused the clay parking lot at the fairgrounds to get muddy, said Richard Fender, President of the Merchants Association of Columbia County. Fair officials say they don't want cars getting stuck.

The fair will be open normal hours for the rest of the weekend: from noon to midnight Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday.
