Fall Festival Drew Big Crowds to Community Park Sat.
Kids painted pumpkins, did spin art, ate cotton candy
The Point Pleasant Borough Fall Festival at Community Park attracted hundreds on Saturday.
Kids did spin art, painted pumpkins, got temporary tattoos, rode a train and ate cotton candy and popcorn, and adults listed to live bands or sampled beer or wine. There was a wide array of food and crafts and other items sold at vendors' booths.
The bands Brue Crew and the Yard Monsters entertained the crowds.
There were many local organizations manning tables, including a table staffed by moms raising money for Project Graduation scheduled for June 2013. Nanci Ciccone, Georgette Mullen, Cindy Blank, Donna Palermo and Marianne Kavanagh are among those raising money for the next class of Point Borough High School graduates to have a fun, safe, alcohol-free night at the Atlantic Club after the graduation ceremony.
Admission, games, rides, the trolley, musical entertainment and parking were free.
The only charges at the festival were for food, drinks and items purchased at the vendors’ booths.
The event was planned by members of the Borough Recreation and Cultural Affairs Advisory Committee. Point Borough EMS and other local organizations were also there.
