Horse pulls at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26 and Sunday, Sept. 27 are the only activities from the Horse Heritage Days that survived this week's rain.

Festival organizers opted to cancel today and this weekend's activities at the new Grant County Fairgrounds on Baton Rouge Road in Williamstown after it rained most of the week.

The horse pulls will be held at Kentucky Cowtown on Eibeck Lane (off U.S. 25) in Williamstown.

However, the art show, 4-H animal swap, horse contests and other activities have been cancelled, as of Friday, Sept. 25, said Tracie Kinman Rothwell, administrative assistant for the Grant County Chamber of Commerce and one of the festival's organizers.
