Thoughts on the Upcoming Weekend

The weather forcast for the upcoming weekend looks perfect. There are many organized events planned and plenty else to just enjoy. Here are my picks.

The Hoboken Italian Festival in Sinatra Park starts Thursday and runs through Sunday. From their website - "The highlight of the feast, beyond the fabulous variety of foods and entertainment, is the day long procession through the streets of Hoboken, including a pain staking reenactment of the "Blessing of the Fleet" in the Hudson River, all culminating with a huge fireworks extravaganza over the park. Sinatra Park, named after Hoboken's favorite son, Frank Sinatra, is where On The Waterfront was filmed in 1954." For a full schedule, go here: Hoboken Italian Festival.

The Raritan Bay Seafood Festival is Sunday, September 10th in South Amboy at the Raritan Bay Waterfront Park. It runs from 11am to 6pm with the Marshall Tucker Band performing at 2pm. Admission is free and there is Shuttle Bus Service from the NJ Transit Train Station. Call 732.525.5977 for more information.

A Visit to Sandy Hook may be in order. I want to check out the recently completed 5-mile long Multi-Use Pathway. The 12-foot wide pathway accommodates walkers, bicyclists and in-line skaters. There is a ranger led Lenape Nature Walk on Saturday, September 9 at 2 pm. Meet at the Sandy Hook Visitor Center. On Sunday at 2pm there is a 2-hour tour of fortifications that once defended New York Harbor. The tour is free, however reservations are required. Call 732-872-5970. Remember to bring a flashlight.
