Overflow of ice damages fairgrounds buildings in Vermont
TUNBRIDGE, Vt. (AP) — Vermont officials say they will have to wait for the ice to thaw to properly assess the damage to the Tunbridge World’s Fair fairgrounds.
Fair official Gordon Barnaby says all of the damage can be repaired and the upcoming September fair won’t be impacted. The Valley News reports eight barns on the grounds took a beating from ice buildup flooding.
Officials say other buildings on the property that house expensive fair equipment and double as fee-based storage for area residents’ vehicles were unaffected by the ice.
Barnaby says the fairgrounds see a fair amount of flooding and ice every so often, but the buildup this year was particularly high.
