MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ -  It is what a county fair should be.

Rides, deliciously horrible-for-you food, refillable root beer tankards, corny-yet-wonderful sideshows, Democrats, Republicans, rabbits, Girl Scouts, wrestlers, garish games, music and plenty of fun.

That's what patrons of the 79th annual Middlesex County Fair have found thus far.
