LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – On Thursday, the Kentucky State Fair board voted to extend an agreement with Louisville investor Ed Hart giving him rights to try to re-open the amusement park.

A new financing proposal to revive the park is also being discussed by the fair board, Hart, and the city. The initial deal on the park was set to expire Saturday but has now been extended until September 30.
