Check out these pictures from the Middlesex County, NJ Fair
I had a such a great time Friday when we took the New Jersey 101.5 Big Yellow Van to the Middlesex County Fair, which celebrated its 84th anniversary this weekend with rides, bands, craft vendors, home arts competitions and different exhibits.
What I love about fairs is that they are so local and intimate. Lots of families and friends create lots of memories. Unlike the shore or Great Adventure, you don't have as many people coming from far away. It's loud and local and has lots of food and fun.
Let's start with the food. I had the most incredible London Broil sandwich from a place called Moms.
Though I didn't see Mom herself, I did see her being paid homage in the funny T-shirts worn by the staff. The sandwich was honestly the best of its kind I ever had. The meat which was piled on was so tender that it just melted in your mouth with every easy bite. It was delicious!
Mom's was just one of so many great food places that lined the streets of the fair. Check out these others
There were some great sights to see just walking around like this guy on stilts.
Or this guy who was juggling fire.
There was a stage with bands and dancers.
And if it's rides you like, check out these!
There were also games to play and prizes to win, especially if you're a sports fan.
There were lots of exhibits including a tribute to Middlesex County agriculture
And it all started with this...
Or maybe that's where it ended if it was used for cleanup. Just kidding, either way I can honestly say, a good time was had by all.
