But this time, the fun and activities will last two weekends instead of one.The events begin Friday, Sept. 29, from 5 to 10 p.m., and the 30 and 1st, from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.That schedule will repeat itself for the following weekend, beginning Oct. 6 through the 9th. The fair will feature food, rides, and a 90 foot Ferris wheel. Live bands, including The Nerds, Under Pressure, and Men of Horses will also perform during the festivities.“It went over so well, that everyone keeps asking us to do it twice a year,” said Freeholder Anthony Vainieri, who was instrumental in reviving the festival after it went defunct in the 1970s.“This way, if people go away one weekend, or if they’re not around, they can maybe make it to next weekend. That’s why we extended it a weekend before.” ×Photo credit: Art Schwartzlast_img read more
