I went as a kid and loved it.  It is scheduled for this weekend and the weather looks like it will be great (knock on wood).

It is way too funny that you posted this.  Just less than one hour ago, I was telling someone about Jockey Hollow and the war re-enactments and how I loved going when I was a kid and that he should go sometime and see it.  The weather is supposed to be great ! like you said (knock on wood) ~

Thanks! I love these things and also love how it makes history fun for the kids and not dry and boring.

The kids will definitely like the NJ History Fair. There are so many exhibits, live re-enactments, activities, ... I still go to it myself when I can now that hubby and son have no interest, but we all enjoyed it when my son was younger.

Be aware that the location for it is not always the same. A couple of years back, it was at Allaire State Park, and some years before then it was at Washington Crossing State Park. This year, it's at Monmouth Battlefield State Park, so if nothing else, it introduces you to the various state parks.

Thanks for the heads up!

We went very late today for a short time. We plan on going back tomorrow.

One of the horses in the corral seemed a little upset at the backpack carrier I had my son in. The next horse over wasn't bothered at all and even started nuzzling the carrier.

What is this weird person saddle?
