The Ephrata Farmers Day Association, commonly known as the Ephrata Fair, has decided to cancel the Ephrata Fair Parade scheduled for Wednesday, September 26, 2018. The safety of the participants and the spectators is the primary concern of The Fair Association, the Parade Committee, the Fair Safety Committee and Ephrata Emergency Management. The strong possibility exists for severe thunderstorms with strong winds, dangerous lightning and heavy downpours on Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. – 8 p.m. The hard decision to cancel the parade was made with concerns for personal safety. Other events for the week remain scheduled; we hope to see you at tent city and on the midway.
