PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — The truck and tractor pull grandstand event, scheduled for tonight at the Western Michigan Fair has been cancelled, due to possible inclement weather. The weather forecast is calling for scattered thunderstorms beginning at 6 p.m.

The truck and tractor pull will not be rescheduled, according to Marcia Hansen, spokesperson for the Western Michigan Fair Association.
