Heavy Rain Forces Delaware Co. Fair to Cancel Truck and Tractor Pull

rain fairStorms and heavy rain moved through the area Saturday night… Severe storms packed with 70 mile per hour winds hit Dubuque and Jones counties, but no considerable damage reported from those storms. Flash flooding was an issue Saturday night across the state. Over an inch of rain fell within 20 minutes in the Peosta area. Two rounds of heavy rain forced the Delaware County Fair to cancel Saturday night’s main grandstand event, the Fantasy Truck Pull and ECI Tractor Pull. The event was just about to get underway when the first round of heavy rain moved through. The fair’s Draft Horse Show has been postponed until tomorrow, with events starting earlier at 10:30 am at the fairground’s Horse Arena. And the chainsaw carving auction has been moved to noon Sunday.
