This is the season for great New Jersey tradition, the local and county fair. I'm so glad they are back. The local and county fairs are the makeup of the extended community they serve. The fair is an integral part of keeping the community together.

I was at the Middlesex County Fair on Thursday night and I forgot how "americana" and local the fair is to the community.The fair has everything rides, a midway, farm animals, entertainment, and usually homemade crafts and local merchandise for sale.

As people came up to me to say hello, they all seemed like they were in a great mood at the fair during this beautiful night. Here's a list of local and county fairs we are aware of. Enjoy the fair, have a funnel cake and a smile.
