Idaho's largest fair cancelled this year
Boise's Western Idaho Fair has been canceled this summer.
Fair officials made the announcement on Tuesday and said it was a difficult decision "after reviewing many possible scenarios and receiving advice from Western Idaho Fair's advisory board and Ada County officials."
It's the state's largest event and attracts a quarter of a million people every year.
While the fair will be mostly canceled, staff members are still planning to host the popular 4-H and future Farmers of America youth exhibits, competitions and sales.
