Topping that list is the Wallenda Productions Aerial Thrill Show.  Audiences will be amazed by Blake Wallenda, a member of the legendary family, as he performs death-defying feats on the highwire.  The thrills continue during the WonderZone Dinosaour Zoo.  This traveling children's museum presents an interactive and educational puppet show that will delight families. The Fair also welcomes the Butterfly Encounter for the first time.  This exhibit allows visitors to feed and enjoy hundreds of butterflies - including six different species!

Some acts are joining the festivities for a few days.  The NOLA-influenced and Jersey-based brass band Ocean Avenue Stompers is performing on Wednesday and Thursday.  Ultrabot will stroll the fairgrounds Wednesday-Saturday while Crunchy the T-Rex will stomp through on Thursday and Friday. Saturday and Sunday bring Bluey and Bingo.

One of the Fair’s entertainment highlights is live music on the main stage. This year’s lineup includes The Counterfeiters on Wednesday night; Brian Kirk & the Jirks on Thursday night; Super Trans Am on Friday night; CC & The Boys on Saturday night; and Rock It Academy and Magnolia Street String Band on Sunday.
