Hot Ticket in Monmouth County This Weekend . . . The County Fair!

What are you doing this weekend?  Going to the Fair?

The Monmouth County Fair only happens once a year, and as far as we're concerned it's a no-miss local event.  There's a ton of fun for the kids with rides, fishing, pig races, and lots of unique entertainment.  Not only do the kids have a blast, but they get the opportunity to connect with animals up close and personal.  Of course there is plenty of fun and entertainment for the adults too. 

Get a complete Monmouth County Fair Booklet and schedule of events here.  

Enjoy the weekend!  Hope to see you there!

Freehold's Best Italian Restaurants

Freehold . . . known for it's great schools and family-oriented community spirit . . . also may be known for having some pretty good restaurants.  Here are 4 of our favorite Italian restaurants in the downtown area.

La Cipollina Ristorante

For something special, try La Cipolilina.  Their well-dressed and attentive wait staff will spoil you.  So will the elegant cheeses and fresh vegetables.  Try their homemade mozzarella or their classic French chicken breast . . . both customer favorites.

Federici's Family Italian Restaurant

For a casual lunch or dinner try Federici's, which has been a family-owned Freehold staple for over 85 years.  The restaurant, which could double as a museum, serves delicious pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, soups and salads.
