The Fowlerville Family Fair will go on.
The Fowlerville News & Views is reporting that barring an order from the state to the contrary, or a worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic, the fair will go on as scheduled. The fair is scheduled for July 27-Aug. 1 at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds.
Dr. Tim Tersigni, a member of the fair board, told the News & Views that it was a unanimous decision to not cancel the fair.
“Given what’s going on now with the shelter in place that is confining many people to their homes, the business closures and layoffs, and the disruption and hardship this is causing, the board felt that putting on the fair would be a way of helping things get back to normal,” he told the News & Views.
Tersigni also said the fair would operate mostly as it has in past years. The animal show and other exhibits that were normally put on by 4-H will continue under the heading of a “Youth Show,” because all 4-H activities have been suspended until September.
