August is here, but don't panic—there's still plenty of summer left! Make the most of this weekend by checking out one of the many fairs and festivals happening across the state, including the New Jersey State Fair: Sussex County Farm & Horse Show, Terhune Orchards' Just Peachy Festival, and the Cape May Beer & Crab Festival. Take a break from the heat with Bank of America Free Museum Days or a performance of West Side Story; catch a free movie on the beach; or explore the forest on a guided nature walk.
