The 47th Annual Metuchen Country Fair, held on Saturday, October 2, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, was host to some serious creativity last weekend. The Metuchen Garden Club, Girl Scout Troops and Ms. Doreen's Fabulous Feet all won accolades as did many other area businesses and organizations. Check out who won what for the various booth categories.
