PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — The South Florida Fair re-opened at noon Monday after soggy weekend that shutdown festivities on Sunday.

Vendors say they are ready to get back to work and ready for a strong, final week.

Some food vendors were already up early making donuts and preparing for Monday’s crowds.

“It was kind of a bummer. We love this fair and we love the people. We’re only here for 17 days, and we like to make the best of them. We are excited to be open today and looking forward to all the crowds,” said Gentry Miller of Josephine’s Glazed Donuts.

“We had a rainy day yesterday. Rain is good for the environment; we like to have rain but not at the fair. We’re all anxious to get started, get back in it and have a grand finish for this thing,” said Agricultural Manager Matt Daly.

Late last week the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was also investigating a possible threat at the fair. Deputies have been visible and on high alert.

The fair will continue until Feb. 3 at 8 p.m.
