FAMILY FRIENDLY SUMMER EVENT OFFERS CLASSIC CARS, MUSIC, GAMES, RIDES, FOOD, FIREWORKS, AND GREAT KIDS AND THEIR ANIMALS
The annual Morris County 4-H Fair, which celebrates the work of 4-H kids from across Morris County and mixes it great food, fireworks, rides, games, and other family friendly attractions, kicks off its four-day run on Thursday, July 19, and runs through Sunday, July 22 at Chubb Park in Chester Township.
Planned activities including pony and hay rides, petting zoos, watermelon eating, cake decorating, dress-a-pet contests, animal shows, archery, a tricky tray, and even “cow pie bingo” to go with the live entertainment, fireworks, and classic cars. Try the chicken BBQ and root beer floats.
“The 4-H Fair showcases the hard work and achievements of our young members, while offering family fun activities,” said Kelly Dziak, Morris County 4-H Program Associate.
“We urge county residents to come out to this terrific fair and support the positive work done by these great 4-H kids and their families and leaders, who come from across our county,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Heather Darling, who will participate in opening ceremonies on Thursday.
There is no admission fee for the fair, but a parking donation of $5 per vehicle is requested. On Friday evening, in preparation for the fireworks, parking will be $10, which includes 3-D fireworks glasses.
A special $15 pay-one-price for all kiddie rides is scheduled on Friday, July 20, from 11a.m. until 1p.m., and a $30 pay-one-price for all amusement rides will be offered on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
