The Somerset County 4-H Fair is Coming! August 13, 14, and 15, 2008

August 13-14-15, 2008
North Branch Park, Milltown Road, Bridgewater, N.J.



What began as a dairy show in a farm field has become one of the marquee events on the Somerset County cultural calendar and the premier free fair in New Jersey...



I have been going to the Somerset County 4-H Fair for over 35 years, since before I was even old enough to be a 4-H Prep Club member. Despite the fact that we live in Morris County, as soon as London was old enough to join last September, I started taking her over to the Prep Club meetings at the Ted Blum 4-H Center in Bridgewater, NJ (Somerset County, about five minutes from the house I grew up in). After London's first year in the Crazy Clovers Prep Club, with Maddie participating as a "tag-along" and planning to join the club in September, our family continues to believe that Somerset County 4-H is the best 4-H experience in the surrounding area.

The Somerset County 4-H Fair, rather than going commercial with rides and games, focuses on the kids and their achievements. Our whole family loves to see the dogs, cows, sheep, rabbits, goats, horses and alpaca. In the chicken tent, there's always an incubator full of eggs with chicks being hatched before your eyes. This year, I'll commit to bringing my new Canon EOS Rebel XSi and sharing lots of animal photos here.

This year's Somerset County 4-H Fair promises to be bigger and better than ever, attracting tens of thousands of visitors with its wholesome mix of arts, entertainment, agriculture, animals, science, food, fellowship and just plain fun.

The 2008 Somerset County, NJ 4-H Fair runs Wednesday, August 13th through Friday, August 15th. 10am-10pm all days. Don't worry, we'll be reminding you here at Roxiticus Desperate Housewives a few more times over the next four weeks. And late in the afternoon of Wednesday, August 13th, you can look for London, Maddie and me in the 4-H Prep Club Cotton Candy Tent!

I love Cotton Candy! Don't care to much for country fairs, but I am looking forward to seeing your pictures taken with your new spiffy camera ;) Voted.
