EAST AMWELL, NJ – The 20th annual Hunterdon County 4-H and Agriculture Fair is underway now through Sunday, Aug. 25.

Although light rain is falling on Hunterdon this morning, the National Weather Service expects it to taper off by afternoon. That’s good news for the big fireworks show that is scheduled for 9:15 this evening.

The Fair’s fun includes dozens of shows and contests, all sorts of food, a variety of amusement rides for all ages and free Main Stage entertainment. All of the fun happens at the Roger K. Everitt Fairgrounds here, on Route 179 just south of Ringoes. Admission is free; the $10 donation benefits local fire companies and rescue squads.
