The Hillsborough Rotary Fair and Business Expo is set to open for five days with a new, customer-friendly feature – a digital map for smart phones.
Pinnacle Health and Fitness in Hillsborough developed and donated the app specifically for use at the Fair.
The interactive map will enable fair attendees to load the app onto their smart phones by scanning a QR code that will be posted around the fairgrounds.
“The digital map not only allows guests to find the exact location of every ride, game, food vendor and Business Expo participant at the fair, but also provides helpful information and promotional offers from fair vendors and Business Expo participants,” said Ashley Rose, president Rotary Club of Hillsborough. “Pinnacle will be adding new information to the app right up to the start of the air.”
The fair begins Aug. 16. Fair hours are 6-10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 6-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
In addition to the fair’s classic thrill rides, food vendors, games of chance and an
exposition of local businesses, a firework display by Interstate Fireworks will light up Hillsborough skies on Aug. 19 at approximately 10 p.m. Rain date is Aug. 21 at 10 p.m.
The firework display is sponsored by Petrock’s Bar & Grille and Petrock’s Liquors.
