The Washington County Fair fireworks show that was slated to go off at dusk Tuesday was canceled due to drought conditions.
"With the existing drought conditions and an unlikely chance of rain, we just don't want to take any chances to start the fair off with catastrophe," said Fair Manager Sandy Lang.
The fair continues until Sunday. Events includes the crowning of the Fairest of the Fair, Battle of the Bands and BOTS IQ. REO Speedwagon headlines the event with a performance at 7 p.m. Thursday.
