The Saline Community Fair will go on despite money woes, but some events, including the annual parade through downtown, have been cut.

“As a result, we have cut premiums to exhibitors; eliminated certain events and moved the fair dates up one week so we are not competing with the opening of school,” the letter states. “For this year we have eliminated the parade in downtown Saline, which will produce a significant savings to the city as well as the fair.”
The fair will still include a children’s parade on the fairgrounds Sept. 1, according to the letter.
The fair runs Aug. 28 through Sept. 3.
