Thousands of Greater Milford-area patrons and many more from a regional draw flocked Aug. 17-19 to the 61st Bridgewater Country Fair.

The annual fundraiser for the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department was held on the grounds behind the firehouse, along Route 133 in Bridgewater.

Among the highlights were Friday's parade, a fireman's muster and an antique tractor pull on Saturday and a variety of musical performances and freestyle motocross demonstrations throughout the three-day event, as well as the traditional delicious food, rides, contests and raffles.
