Rain impacting NYS Fair setup

New York State Fair

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Rain has taken its toll on the Great New York State Fair setup. Some crews had to start setting up a little later. Plus, getting deliveries has been difficult with all the mud. 

The drive in was not easy. Vendor like Bobby Irving says keeping things dry has also been a challenge, putting duties on pause. 

“When we first started setting up, we had to shut down because they had a severe flash flood warning, and we couldn’t finish stocking and cleaning up the joint.”  

The Fair officially kicks off Friday morning.
