FLEMINGTON, NJ – Thousands are flocking to the Liberty Village and Stangl Road area here, soaking up the sun, the sounds, and the fun of the borough’s annual Corn, Tomato and Beer Festival.
The event, organized by Flemington Community Partnership, includes live bands on multiple stages, kid’s activities, fire truck rides on the borough’s historic “Old Betsy” and face painting, vegetable stands and artisan vendors. The celebration continues until 8 p.m. today.
Flemington police are offering K-9 demonstrations. Restaurants and food stands are featuring roasted corn, gazpacho, wood-fired pizza and more.
This year’s event includes heightened security. Flemington Police Chief Jerry Rotella said early this afternoon that the only incident so far was an uneventful bee sting.
Festival admission and parking are free. Take Route 12 to the parking lot entrance near Liberty Village and enter Stangl Road on foot from the south end by the Polo Outlet and Lone Eagle Brewing.
