HILLSBOROUGH, NJ -The brightly lit midway arch is once again expected to welcome an average of 15,000 local residents to the annual six-day Rotary Fair beginning Tuesday, August 14.

Located adjacent to the Hillsborough Promenade, 315 Route 206, the Fair transforms the field into a classic carnival with over 20 amusement rides, games of chance, food vendors and local business displays.

“It’s not uncommon to see young parents, who had attended the Fair as children themselves, now bringing their own children to experience this family summer tradition,” said Greg Burchette, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.   “We are very grateful for the support our community has shown over the years.”

In addition to classic thrill rides, including the Himalayan, Bumper Cars, Ring of Fire, Super Shot, Sizzler, Zipper, Carousel and Kite Flyer, a spectacular firework display by Interstate Fireworks and sponsored by Petrock’s Bar & Grille, will light up Hillsborough skies on Friday evening, Aug.17, at 10 p.m. (rain date Saturday Aug. 18).

Opening Night 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.

The Fair also provides local businesses 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 fairgoes.

“Meeting prospective customers at a highly regarded community event can do a great deal to boost a company’s image and customer base,” noted Ken Genco, the Rotary Club of Hillsborough member in charge of the business showcase. “Community members deeply appreciate those businesses that demonstrate their community support through events like this.”
