There are many attractions close to my hometown. Many local communities offer carnivals, street fairs, 4H fairs, music festivals, etc.
Many non profit organizations offer a variety of events during the year. One of the largest events in my area is the Far Hills Race Meeting, a charitable benefit for Somerset Medical Center that draws nearly 50,000 people from the Northeast. Other noteworthy events include Miles for Matheny in Peapack, Charter Day in Basking Ridge, Bernardsville Street Fair and Sounds Around Town and the Somerset County 4H Fair, the largest free family fair East of the Mississippi, drawing nearly 60,000 visitors in 3 days.
