Although this is a Monmouth County photoblog, I rarely feature the west side of the county. But for the MONMOUTH COUNTY FAIR, I think I’d better!

The Monmouth County Fair (in Freehold) happens once a year in the summer for the better part of a week. There are rides, 4H and “living history” exhibits, vendors, tents for associations across the county, pig races, lumberjack shows, and the Home and Garden tent.

In the days leading up to the fair, people can enter their amateur H&G products (be they art, crafts, vegetables, flowers, or honey) for judging.
