The Floyd County Fair in Charles city was disrupted early and late Wednesday by the severe weather that rolled through. And, while yesterday’s rains were welcome, Lesley Mehmen with ISU Extension’s Floyd County office talked with KCHA/KCZE prior to the stormy weather about the need for precipitation to help area crops, which has been spotty through most of the growing season.
The Floyd County Fair continues today with activities including more performances by the All-Star Stunt Dogs, plus Eric Michaels Magic and Illusions, and Figure 8 Racing.
The Fair Board has announced that tonight’s (07.15)Jesse Allen country music concert has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond their control. The band’s bus broke down in St. Louis and they will not be able to get a rental vehicle or transportation in time to perform tonight in Charles City.
