The clouds finally gave way and the 2018 Rotary Fair opened Tuesday evening as planned.
The 2018 Rotary Fair looked like a washout on its opening night, but Mother Nature came through and the skies cleared in time for the arrival of those dedicated community members for whom the Fair has become an annual tradition.  The Fair is the premier fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Hillsborough, and enables the Club to make financial contributions to a wide variety of community organizations and causes throughout the year.  Some 15,000 guests are expected to attend the Fair over its six-day run.  The Rotary Fair is located at the Hillsborough Promenade (adjacent to the Lowes parking lot) off Route 206.  Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are Wristband Nights when guests can pay one price ($30) and ride free all night. The Fair boasts over 21 thrill rides, games, food, a DJ, a local business showcase, and, on Friday evening, a spectacular fireworks display sponsored by Petrock's Bar and Grill.  All are welcome.
