Rain cancels truck and tractor pulls, but fair fun continues | News, Sports, Jobs



BAZETTA — Today’s main event at the Trumbull County Fair, the truck and tractor pulls, were canceled this afternoon after the promoter and fair board directors determined that the track was too wet.

The track needed to be drier for the vehicles to get enough traction, and the vehicles involved are “big dollar,” so conditions need to be right, said Steve Burback, one of the fair board directors.

The weather forecast called for dry conditions in the early afternoon Saturday, so the promoter and board pushed back the 2:30 pm start time a bit and hoped the rain would stop.

But when it didn’t stop by 3:30, the decision was made to cancel it, Burbach said.

“It breaks my heart after COVID,” Burbach said. There were about 100 people in the grandstands prepared to watch the events when the announcement was made.

The Trumbull County Fair was not held last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tuesday through Thursday were big days at the fair, said Toni Dunbar, a fair board director. But five inches of rain Friday and early today caused problems in certain areas of the fairgrounds.

Dunbar said one change made to help with parking was to allow attendees to park on the track starting today, Dunbar said. That will continue Sunday, the fair’s final day, when the weather is expected to be much better, she said.
