Overnight Rain Postpones First Day of Harness Racing at State Fair

Weather has already complicated some of the activities at the Illinois State Fair.

Unexpected heavy rains at the fairgrounds early Friday morning forced postponement of the first day of harness racing at the Grandstand. A double bill of racing is now planned for Saturday. Some of the parking areas on the fairgrounds were also off-limits on Friday because of the saturated ground.
