  When the Circus Came to Town with Jim Davidson
7 pm, Hunterdon Central High School Little Theatre: Lindbergh and East Amwell Historian, Jim Davidson gives a talk that is neither about the Lindbergh Kidnapping Trial nor about Bruno Hauptmann's guilt or innocence.  It is about all the crazy things that happened in Flemington and in the courtroom.  He promises a richness of revelations and never-before-seen pictures taken in Flemington during the trial.  Suggest donation $10 to the Friends of Historic Flemington.
