HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Heavy rain and lightning brought an early end to this year's Kansas State Fair.

Fair officials closed the midway early Sunday, the last day of the fair, because of flooding and lightning. However, the Toby Keith concert went on as scheduled Sunday night when the rain subsided.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/17D7Gf8 ) many fairgoers waded through a foot of water on the midway while leaving on Sunday.

Fair Manager Denny Stoecklein says those who could not use the ride tickets they bought Sunday could use them next year. And anyone who bought a wristband for rides on Sunday can exchange them for new ones next year.
