Aitkin County Fair canceled due to flooding
There will be no Aitkin County Fair this summer — the first cancellation since 1946.
The county fair — scheduled to start Wednesday and run through July 14 — was canceled Tuesday after a vote by the Aitkin County Board.
The county fair was canceled because of the flooding in Aitkin, Kirk Peysar, Aitkin County auditor and fair board member, said. Peysar said 40 percent of the county fairgrounds is under water.
