Central Jersey air show raises money for military, veterans

HILLSBOROUGH — An air show in the township on Saturday raised funds for the military and veterans while providing outreach for officers and their families.

Visitors gathered at Central Jersey Regional Airport Saturday afternoon for Military and Veterans Appreciation Day to help Rotary District 7510 raise funds that would be donated to various charities and foundations.

Some of the attractions included vintage and modern-day aircraft on display, along with antique and collector vehicles — including a Shockwave Monster Truck — food vendors, live bands, face painting and other children's rides, including a tethered hot air balloon.

Some of the participating organizations included Operation Shoebox New Jersey, Operation Chill Out, One Stop Career Center, and the Vets Chat and Chew project.
