EAST AMWELL, NJ – This year’s Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair is underway.

This is the 17th annual staging of the event here, which has a full schedule of activities through the weekend. More than 50 acts, activities, bands and groups will appear on the Main Stage and there are several dozen shows and contests.

The goat and dairy shows were held this morning, but there’s still lots more on the agenda. Highlights this evening include the 4-H Dog Rally Obedience competition at 6:30, Unity Bank Blizzard of Dollars at 7:45 and the Dave Bond & Real Country show at 8. This group, usually the most popular at the fair, follows the 5:30 show of Citizens Band Radio, a country rock group from Woodglen in the northern tip of Hunterdon.

One of the fair’s most spectacular events is the fireworks show; that starts around 9 p.m. tomorrow. Earlier, the Bell-Tones, a female vocal trio featuring songs from the 1950s and 60s, will perform and then comes Mahoney Brothers “Juke Box Heroes” show. They’re a musical impersonation group, featuring the songs and mannerisms of Neal Diamond, Elvis, Elton John, Willie Nelson and others.

In tribute to the decades of auto racing at Flemington, the Flemington Speedway Historical Society again has its display of old race cars and memorabilia all week, and on Sunday afternoon a program featuring retired racers and some of their cars.

The fair is the successor of the Flemington Fair, which was first staged in 1940 at the original fairgrounds, which is now where Lowes and Walmart are located in Raritan Township.
