The Coweta County Fair will reopen Sunday after a series of fights was responsible for the early closing of the fair Saturday night.

Just after 10:30 p.m., local law enforcement was called to help assist with the situation, which included fights breaking out in several different locations at the fair, according to Inv. Toby Nix with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

The cause of the fights is unknown at this time.

The Coweta County Fair will reopen for normal operations from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
