Weather prompted the Tennessee Valley Fair to temporarily shut down all rides on Monday night.

The shutdown was in place as a safety precaution, according to fair marketing officials. Rides started running again Tuesday morning.

The fair in Chilhowee Park just opened last week. It features rides, booths, food and fireworks at the end of every night. It runs for two weeks in September.

Also affected Monday night, according to officials, were grounds show acts and the Pepsi Tent.

The Matthew West concert was still scheduled Monday as planned, and Demo Derby was still scheduled as planned, according to officials.

The Jacob and Kerr buildings remain open, and the livestock barns are still open.

The remnants from Hurricane Irma are now crossing a wide swath of the South, including Tennessee, packing occasionally high winds and rain.
