Filled with local history, music, food and homespun fun, the 30th annual Brookhaven Country Fair attracted more than 10,000 visitors and 80-plus vendors this weekend at the Revolutionary War-era Longwood Estate in Ridge.

The event, put on by the Brookhaven Department of Parks and recreation, included Revolutionary War and Civil War re-enactments, World War II artillery demonstrations, and live music.
