FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — According to an official from the Big Fresno Fair, carnival rides are back in action after “unsafe” wind speeds forced carnival rides to shut down Monday.

Carnival operators will monitor the wind to make sure certain rides on the midway are safe to ride, but officials say as of Tuesday the attractions are open.

Additionally, the remaining three days of live horse racing are going forward as planned; the next race day is Friday, Oct. 15. Many of the races, which were canceled on Monday, are next scheduled for Friday. This will move the horse racing post time early to 12:45 p.m.
