A FAIR SIGHT: FAIR HAVEN FIREMEN’S FAIR

fhfiremens-fair-2010The Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair kicks off its traditional week-plus run Friday night.

Touted as the biggest firemen’s fair in New Jersey, the event boasts feel-good qualities galore: brimming bowls of clam chowder, bird’s-eye views from atop a Ferris wheel, dizzying rides and a much-anticipated “super 50-50” drawing. Upwards of 10,000 visitors are expected.

The fair runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. It’s closed on Sunday, and wraps up Saturday, September 3.
