MORE than an inch of rain overnight and the expectation of more today has left organisers of the Orara Valley Fair with no other option but to postpone the event.

This is the second year in a row that poor weather has forced a quick search for an alternative date for the popular event to be held.

Last year the event was held on the middle weekend of the July school holidays and the committee is hoping the weekend is free again this year at Upper Orara Recreation Reserve on Dairyville Road.

The middle weekend of the school holiday this year is July 7 and 8.
