Freedom Fest State Fair NJ
Racing pigs. Hypnotists. The Marshall Tucker Band. Freedom Fest State Fair NJ is a lot of things, but it's not your average state fair. Besides familiar fair attractions such as roller coasters, ferris wheels, and carousels, this celebration features strange sights and hands-on activities. Or sometime face-on—pie-eating contests every night prove who is the best berry-guzzler. And on Healthy Eating Saturday, the fair hosts herb-tasting alongside gardening shows and farmers' markets. Other can't-miss events include the Eudora Animal Petting Farm, where kids can cuddle with zebras, lemurs, tortoises, and a giraffe. Celebrity hypnotist Catherine Hickland of One Life to Live, Knight Rider, and Law and Order, meanwhile, can convince adults they are cuddling zebras, lemurs, tortoises, and a giraffe. At night, big-name country artists such as Lyndsey Highlander, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the Little River Band join forces with local acts such as Kindred Spirit and cover bands such as Tusk, the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band.
