Warrick Co. Fair different this year due to storm damage

Posted: Updated:

The Warrick County 4-H Horse Barn was severely damaged in the storms that came through about two months ago and it was decided to tear it down.

The horse's scheduled to show this upcoming week now have a little different week than normal.

The Warrick County Fair starts on Monday. The Horses will be shown on Tuesday and Wednesday at the fair.

However, because there is no longer a barn for them to stay in, the horses will be trailered in the day of and then taken back after they have performed.

Fair Board Vice President Jim Williams showed horses when he was in 4-H.

He thinks it might be better for them to be away from the excitement on the fairgrounds.

"There not in here all week with the midway running and everybody hooting and hollering," said Williams. "They may be a little more steady at home too."

"The sad part is the kids have worked and this is their time to display where they're at," Williams said. "That's not going to be done this year."

Williams said they're still waiting on insurance funds to come in before they decide exactly what to do with the horse barn.

He said they might not even re-build in on this location, but rather another spot on the fairgrounds.
