LAKE COMO, NJ — The 24th annual Lake Como Day will be held Saturday, September 28 along the scenic banks of the borough’s namesake lake.

The marque event for this Jersey Shore community will feature an afternoon of festivities for the entire family that culminates with fireworks bursting over the lake at dusk. From 4 to 9 p.m., a wide array of attractions — ranging from food vendors, artisans and informational displays — will be situated along North Boulevard.

Children will enjoy a host of activities, including free face painting, inflatables that include a super-slide and bouncy house, and fire truck rides.

A beer and wine tent will once again be set up alone the lakefront, as The Get Down Committee, formerly Fatback, will be getting the crowd moving with three sets of dance music — from funk and soul to Motown and Top 40 — for all ages.

And for the first time — as a way of giving back to the community — the event committee will establish a sponsorship-supported scholarship fund that will benefit a college-bound Lake Como resident graduating from high school.

Rain date is Sunday, September 29.
