Pack a picnic basket, put the kids in their pajamas, pile everyone into the DeSoto (or the minivan), and head over to Warrenbrook Pool on Warrenville Road in Warren Township for the Somerset County Park Commission Drive-In Movie. Take the family back in time with drive-in movies just like in the 50's - complete with large screen.
In addition to classic thrill rides, including the Himalayan, Bumper Cars, Ring of Fire, Super Shot, Sizzler, Zipper, Carousel and Kite Flyer, a spectacular firework display by Interstate Fireworks and sponsored by Petrock’s Bar & Grille, will light up Hillsborough skies, at the Hillsborough Rotary Fair.

The 2018 Franklin Township Community Farmers Market is returning with its mission of supporting Franklin Township and New Jersey agriculture! The Market, with its carefully curated mix of produce and specialty vendors, was the 2017 winner of the Healthier Somerset Award!
Please include, on your “Saturday To Do List”, shopping with the vendors at the Market Fair. The vendors are different each week, but each one has something good and with a great price. When you support the vendors you are helping The Citizens Club of Franklin Township Inc raise funds to maintain our building. Are you interested in being a vendor? Call Aurtherine at 732-939-0514.
