  2. Emerging Artist Art Exhibit

    September 6, 2018 - September 30, 2018 @ Warden's House Gallery

    Local Burlington county residents are featured at the Warden’s House Gallery in a monthly rotation. Please be sure to stop in for each exhibit and experience the unique and diverse array of artistic expression. “For many years, I have made narrative paintings in acrylic, using only black and white paint. In these value studies, I attempt to fuse the personal with the surreal to give visual expression to experiences I have had. Since settling in Mount Holly a year ago, I have explored painting the Rancocas Creek and its tributaries. I have chosen to focus on water, a rare commodity in Arizona, where I have lived most of my life. I am intrigued by the juxtaposition of water and earth, earth and sky.” - Art Smith Gallery Hours: Thursday - Saturday, 10 AM - 4 PM and Sunday, Noon - 4 PM.

  6. Tractor Pull

    September 22, 2018, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Burlington County Fairgrounds

    Tractor Pulling is known as “the world’s heaviest motorsport.” The goal of tractor pulling is to determine the strongest machine and the best driver. Different to every other motorsport in the world, it is not about the speed, but distance pulled. Tractor pulling is a competitive motor sport in which modified farm tractors, modified tractors or trucks drag a metal sled along a prescribed course. The distance from start to finish is measured in thousandths of an inch and the tractor that pulls the sled the farthest distance is declared the winner. If more than one competitor reaches the full pull mark, a pull-off is held to determine a winner. Spectators are welcome. Visit http://www.cjtpa.org/ for more information.
