Bartholomew fair board approves extra day, nixes fireworks


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Bartholomew County 4-H Fair Board has turned down a plan to bring fireworks to the county fair this summer, but the fair will open a day early on the Fourth of July.

Larry Fisher, president of the fair board, said the board approved the extra day at its Monday night meeting, but unanimously voted against the fireworks proposal. Fisher said he had heard from several community members who applauded the fireworks idea.

The largest concern was for the cost of liability insurance, which fair board members concluded would be too expensive.
