As we say goodbye to July, didn't that go by fast, we say hello to August and all the fairs and carnivals getting ready to take place throughout the Hudson Valley. So, get ready to eat your favorite fair foods, ride some rides, play the games, and enjoy some great music.

This week, kick-off your fair season at The Village of Monroe's Summer Carnival at The Millponds. The fun starts Thursday at 6 pm and continues through Sunday. Hours vary each day, so check here for details.

Get an all-day pass for just $25, enjoy the music of The Pickles on Saturday night at 7, and then don't miss the fireworks on Sunday night at 9 pm. C'mon, school will be starting before you know it and it will be back to the same old, boring routine. Get out and have some fun and make some memories with your family and friends.

The Monroe Summer Carnival is sponsored by the Village of Monroe Activities Committee.
