The Ocean County Fair runs through the weekend at Robert J Miller Air Park in Berkeley Township.

I was at the Ocean County Fair last night and it was hopping. It was so much fun to see families out and enjoying themselves on the rides, petting the animals, watching those popular pig races, and of course, eating all of the fair food.

It's nice to see the Ocean County Fair back and better than ever and the community coming out for a great time.

A little bit of history of the Ocean County Fair from their website:

The Ocean County Board of Agriculture held the first annual
"4-H Achievement and Agricultural Ocean County Field Day" on September 6, 1947.
The event was held at Ocean County Park in Lakewood and was organized to celebrate 4-H club work and the agricultural prowess of Ocean County, NJ. By 1947, Ocean County had become the center of a thriving cranberry industry and was ranked 8th in the United States in the poultry industry. The total annual agricultural income of the county topped $12 million in 1946.

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
