DES MOINES, Iowa (WHO) — For the first time since WWII there will be no Iowa State Fair.

On Wednesday the Iowa State Fair Board voted 11-2 to postpone the 2020 Iowa State Fair until August of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Just minutes after the vote was carried out live, the Iowa State Fair posted a pre-produced video on Twitter announcing the cancellation.
