Call it literal. With the not-so-fair weather lately, thoughts tend to turn to the hometown warmth and fun that is the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair.
Everyone in the Rumson-Fair Haven area knows that it’s a tradition. So, in keeping with the tradition and the hopes for rising temperatures and more signs of spring, we celebrate summer fair fever.
Never mind spring. We’ll just jump right to summertime when the fair livin’ is laced with a lot of Fair Haven love.
The Retro Pic(s) of the Day offer a glimpse back many decades to the earlier days of the fair.
Check out the apron. Remember Sal’s Tavern in Red Bank? And who are those ladies at what is now the Super 50/50, but used to be the car raffle booth.
Thanks to the FHFD for the archived photos!
