Brookhaven Fair at Bald Hill
If you’re looking for a summer fair, with a carnival midway full of rides and the smell of popcorn in the air, you’re looking for the Brookhaven Fair, which begins May 25 and runs not just through Memorial Day weekend, but stays open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays straight through June 17.
Besides rides, an exotic animal zoo and a petting zoo, which are open all day, they have a ton of different shows including acts like Lance Gifford’s Illusion Show, a Cycle Circus Stunt Show, a Cowtown Agricultural Show, and a Hypnotist Show. That’s not all, of course – there’s stuff like racing pigs! Look for other special events & attractions on the main stage and event times on the website.
The Brookhaven Fair is a good place for a relatively inexpensive family-friendly evening: $5.00 with 2-for-1 coupon available on their website ($10.00 without a coupon); children ages 2 and under free. After 9pm, children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult with government issued ID.
