Tradition and good, oldtime country charm have always been hallmarks of the Bridgewater Country Fair.

So it was again Aug. 20-22 on the fairgrounds along Route 133 in Bridgewater as many thousands of dedicated patrons and likely many newcomers paid homage again to one of the region's most popular fairs.

The event is held with a good time for everyone as the goal and funds to supplement the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department coffers as a happy benefit.

For contest winners and other results from the fair, see Page S17.
