WEST ORANGE, NJ - The annual Downtown West Orange Alliance Street Fair, Edison Day at Thomas Edison National Historical Park and the annual Township picnic filled Main Street this afternoon as thousands enjoyed the sunny weather, food and festivities. The fair also featured free admission to TENHP and Glenmont; the NJ Hall of Fame Mobile Museum; live entertainment and more.
The event took place between Lakeside Avenue and Babcock Place and also included the fair's first-ever Beer Garden along with bounce house rides and a large truck exhibition for the children.
TENHP, tagged by the state of New Jersey to represent the concept of "Innovation" for New Jersey's 350th birthday, did not disappoint as electric cars, demonstrations, and activities filled their schedule.
Megan Brill, Director of the Downtown West Orange Alliance; John McElroy, President of the DWOA; Jessica Glicker, Public Information Officer, and Shari Quirk, the Mayor's Administrative Assistant, were instrumental in the organization of the fair, along with hundreds of township personnel and volunteers.
"It was a great day for the West Orange Community," noted Glicker.
