Officials: Baton Rouge State Fair will not open Sunday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Officials with the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair announced the fair will not open on Sunday due to inclement weather conditions.

A statement released by fair officials says "We regret having to cut the fair short and end a day early but it seems to be the best thing to do in light of the circumstances."

Decision makers with the fair say rain has made it "impossible" to operate the fair in a safe manner and note that the 2016 fair will begin October 27, and run through November 6.
