Marshall County 4-H Fair cancelled

The Marshall County 4-H Fair has been cancelled for this year, officials announced Friday.

The fair had been scheduled for July 18-24.

The Marshall County 4-H Council and Marshall County 4-H Fair Board met Thursday night about this year's fair.

While they could have accommodated the changes required due to COVID-19 restrictions, the restrictions also made it too difficult financially.

They would have needed to limit vendors, parking passes and other sources of income to meet social distancing requirements. Officials said there wasn't enough money in the general fund or savings to support the fair this year.

They do plan to allow 4-H members to exhibit their projects and showcase their efforts through a virtual fair. They will also be exploring options on how to honor the 10-year members.
