Annual Bridgewater Fair Parade - opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 and the parade starts at 6:45 Friday evening. The parade features area Volunteer Fire Companies from Connecticut and New York. The Bridgewater Country Fair is a long standing tradition, preserving the character of the country fairs of yesterday, when farmers and other country folk congregated to compete with their prized livestock, produce, and arts and crafts. It was also, and still is a place where one can compare the latest farm and lawn equipment and haggle on the price of a new vehicle. Besides the displays, there is a fantastic midway, featuring rides provided by Tufano Amusements, Inc., as well as great food tents all through the fairgrounds featuring our famous roast beef sandwiches, chicken breasts, or if you are in the mood for a hotdog, well, we have them as well.
