October 19th, 2013 at the Fairgrounds
What is it?
Please join us for the TRIPLE HEADER...Prickett's Punkin Chunkers, the Armed Forces Freedom Run, and the Central Jersey Tractor Pullers Association, join to bring you the 2013 Fall Fling Festival! ...And with Free Parking and Free Admission, you can't go wrong!
AFFR: We will start the day with the Armed Forces Freedom Run 5K and 6-hr Relay. In addition to being a bunch of fun, the proceeds go directly back to our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and their families at the nearby Joint Base. Click the link above to learn more and register.
Following the 5K through the trails on the fields, the Punkin Chunkers will show us how it is done! You will be able to witness the awesome power of gourd-tossing catapults and cannons. This is their final trials before heading to the regional competition in November. Come check out their newest machine...the Centrifugal Launcher.
It doesn't stop there. The CJTPA will treat you to the roar of tractors as they go head-to-head to show who has the strongest machine. They will also display an array of meticulously restored and maintained antique and show tractors.
