RUTHERFORD, NJ - The Bayonne Chamber of Commerce opened the break to warm weather with a night at the races.

Held in a skybox at Meadowlands Racetrack, the "special" night included horse, ostrich and camel races. 

While the focus of the event was on the celebration of summer, the chamber also "transferred the reins" of the business development group from outgoing president Matthew Dorans to new president Thomas Coughlin.
