I realize the fair is always Columbus Day Weekend, but this year, that includes Yom Kippur. Much of Farmingdale's Jewish community will be fasting and attending services from sundown Friday thru sundown Saturday. Perhaps in this unusual calendar event, the fair could have been moved to the following weekend, in consideration of those observers...including many local children.
