HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Another record-breaking crowd of over 15,000 is expected to visit the weeklong Rotary Club of Hillsborough’s annual Fair, scheduled for Aug.15 – 20, at the Hillsborough Promenade, 315 Route 206.
Now in its tenth year under Rotary leadership, the Fair will again offer attendees a dizzying array of thrill rides, games, food, vendor displays and a special fireworks show on Friday evening, Aug. 18.
“Families from all over Central Jersey have made our Fair a must-do family tradition,” said Anthony Franchini, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough. “We are very grateful to the community members who have supported this important fundraiser each year.”
The Rotary Fair features 21 amusement rides by Majestic Midway Amusements, games by Paladin Amusements, a DJ, a wide selection of food, various displays by area vendors and a petting zoo.
Featured rides include the Himalayan, Bumper Cars, Ring of Fire, Super Shot, Sizzler, Zipper, Carousel, Kite Flyer and many more. This year, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday will be pay-one-price ($30) wristband nights.
All proceeds raised at the fair are returned to the community as contributions to local community service organizations.
A fireworks display by Interstate Fireworks, which debuted at the 2014 Fair, will again light up Hillsborough skies on Friday evening, Aug. 18, at approximately 9:30 pm (rain date is Saturday Aug. 19). Petrock’s Bar & Grille is the major firework’s sponsor.
The Fair will once again provide local businessmen and women with multiple opportunities to showcase their services and connect directly with customers through the purchase of a $300 sign displayed at the Fair throughout the week, or the purchase a $600 tented space that provides an opportunity to meet and talk with attendees.
“Meeting prospective customers at a highly regarded community event can do a great deal to boost a company’s image and customer base,” Franchini said. “Community members deeply appreciate those businesses that demonstrate their community support through events like this.”
The Rotary Club of Hillsborough has over 40 active members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities. Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. All funds raised by The Rotary Club of Hillsborough are used to support a wide variety of community service organizations and projects.
