Head To The Monmouth County Fair For Fun This Weekend
I have never been to the Monmouth County Fair, but the more I read about it, the more it sounds like no other fair I've been to. I saw on the Freehold Patch that they'll have carnival rides (which you can get a wristband for $25 or $30 [depending on which night you go] for unlimited rides), vendors, live music, and shows!
The Monmouth County Fair is going on now through Sunday (July 26th - 29th) at the East Freehold Showgrounds. I saw they'll have unique shows like Bwana Jim's Wildlife Show (the Freehold Patch described it as "a unique collection of snakes, alligators and exotic creatures for an educational and high-spirited show"), you can root for your favorite pig during the pig race, and go watch a fun sounding dog show called Mutts Gone Nuts!
