FAIR HAVEN – The annual Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair opened Friday night to large crowds and perfect weather.

The fair, known for its seafood dinners, rides and fun, will continue at the 645 River Road firehouse through Saturday. Hours Monday though Thursday are 6 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday the fair will be open from 6 to 11 p.m.

The running of the fair requires the efforts of about 125 volunteers each night to operate the various attractions. The attraction requiring the most effort is the dining area. Located in a tent and the first aid squad boys, the area can hold about 150 diners per seating who can select from a variety of seafood and “landlubber” dinners, prepared and served by volunteers. During the day, volunteers work on getting things ready for evening. Among the daytime volunteers are borough kids who take on the responsibility of shucking corn in exchange for ride tickets.

Last year, fairgoers consumed about 18,000 hot dogs and about the same number of hamburgers. Along with those offerings, ice cream is available and adults can go to the beer garden where for wine and beer are available.
