Parking Tents in the Park
The township's annual camp out is one of Hillsborough's summer traditions.
The first week in August marks another of Hillsborough's summer traditions, one meant to get kids and parents enjoying the great outdoors.
The Township's Annual Campout takes place in Ann Van Park from 6 p.m. tonight until 7 a.m. Saturday. It's a night of games, community, and tents out in the park, with kickball, a fishing derby and a campfire.
No word on whether you need to bring your own graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars for s'mores though.
Here's what you need to know today:
