BAYONNE, NJ – Sunny skies, mild temperatures and a crowd in the thousands combined for a successful fair in downtown Bayonne for the third autumn in a row.

The Bergen Point Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 15 featured lots of fun, great food and a diverse choice of buying opportunities – at local stores or day vendors – on Broadway between Fifth and Cottage streets.

Bounce houses and slides were among the most popular activities. But a petting zoo and dog costume contest were also high on the “fun” list.

Booths hawking everything from Bayonne-specific T-shirts, to toys, to women’s clothing and jewelry, were on display. Local community organizations, such as the Bayonne Theater Company and Bayonne Chamber of Commerce, gave out information.

The Mona Lisa Restaurant on Broadway once again offered its al fresco dining on the west side of the avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets.

Several Bayonne Board of Education candidates worked the crowd, looking for votes in the Nov. 8 election.

“This is just great,” said one downtown Bayonne resident of the celebration.

Bayonne Urban Enterprise Zone Coordinator Terrence Malloy said this year’s event differed a bit from last year’s, when windy conditions were a factor.

The festival was sponsored by the UEZ and Bergen Point area merchants.
