The last night of the Harford Farm Fair carnival was canceled Saturday evening after steady rainfall in the area.
The carnival was deserted early Saturday afternoon as organizers initially made plans to re-open once the rain stopped.
They had no plans to give up and cancel entirely, according to Farm Fair Chairman Skip Pieper, who said later at 5:30 p.m. that the carnival was officially canceled.
"Needless to say the weather had a severe impact on our attendance," he added.
This is the first year for the farm fair carnival, and the weather hasn't helped it. Temperatures in the high 90s kept visitors away on opening night Tuesday, and on Wednesday, attendance was light because of the threat of thunderstorms.
Friday night was rainy and soggy, much like Saturday.
Despite the lack of attendance, Pieper said they were pleased with the set-up and quality of the carnival, but that the weather did not "play into [their] hand at all."
"It didn't even give us one decent day," Pieper added. "It really played havoc on our attendance."
Even though it wasn't as good of a fundraiser as they planned, Pieper said that didn't mean organizers wouldn't consider hosting another one in the future.
