For the next six days, the Robert J. Miller Airpark in Berkeley Township will be filled to the brim with rides, games, shows and food for everyone.  It has been an Ocean County tradition for the last 67 years.  The family affair has been run by the Meyer family since the early 1980′s.

The six day event usually brings in anywhere from 50 to 60 thousand people.  This year’s activities include a rooster crowing contest, a dog show and a magical comedy variety show.  Manager O.J. Meyer says the price is right for families on fixed incomes.  He says “tickets are $7 for anyone 10 and up.  Children under 10 are admitted for free.”

Superstorm Sandy had a major impact on the fair.  Meyer tells us the electrical system at the fairgrounds needed a full replacement after getting wiped out.  It was a very expensive proposition.  Also, there had been a lot of the usual partners putting their money towards the relief efforts and can’t partake in this year’s festivities.

Meyer says “while we had a financial strain, we are still working to put on the best possible fair for everyone to enjoy.”
