Our Weekend Picks

If you missed our Instagram post, we recommend a drive over to Route 29 for the Hunterdon County 4H Fair, which runs all weekend long – but Friday night has fireworks! Blue ribbon veggies, prize winning livestock, carnival rides, fried foods, and all the Americana your heart desires. $10 admission per car. http://www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/4Hagfair.htm

If you were thinking “summer isn’t complete without a little fiddle music,” then you’d better head to Howell Living History Farm this weekend!

Night sky, big screen, and big sound – it’s time for another evening of Animation at the Station at the Hopewell Train Station. Once the sun goes down, an animated flick will be shown on the big screen. Bring a blanket, some bug spray and your favorite movie snacks! FREE, 8:30pm. ww.hopewellboro-nj.us

*There’s still time to enjoy summer without the glasses or contacts! We gave up the glasses and visited Princeton area LASIK doc, Dr. Barry Wasserman for the simple, pain-free, office procedure. Click to meet Barry, as his patients call him, and find out more about LASIK.
