Richmond Fair delayed until fall

From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, VA (NBC12) - It appears the Richmond Fair will not be coming to the Diamond next Sunday.

Originally, the fair was supposed to kick off its eight-day run this weekend but that plan hit a snag when organizers did not get the necessary permits from the Richmond Police Department.

Phillip Downing was hoping to start the fair Friday July 24th instead but now, he's putting the event off until the fall.

He says the new dates will depend not only on the permits, but when he can hire the rides.
