Near record heat, rain took a toll on Cedar County Fair

HARTINGTON — The 2019 Cedar County Fair is in the books and Cedar County Ag Society President Greg Heine is glad this one is over.

“We are very glad to have 2019 behind us,” Heine said. “Of all my years, this was the toughest fair I’ve ever dealt with. From the flood (in March) and then the weather at the fair made it a little bit tougher to make these events work.”

This year’s Fair opened with boiling hot temperatures and closed out with sizzling hot entertainment.

In between, there was chilly weather and rain, forcing a rain delay at the final grand stand event of the season, the Bush Pullers Tractor Pull.

“Everyone was very patient during the rain delay. We had a good crowd that hung around in the rain,” Heine said.

Heine said fair organizers knew it would be hot this year, and tried to do everything possible to make the best out of a bad situation.
