CLARK, NJ – It was a record-breaking opening night for the Clark UNICO Italian-American feast on Friday, but stormy weather kept the crowd small on Saturday.

UNICO President Ralph Bernardo said it was an unprecedented crowd on Friday.  People came out in droves, and long lines formed for food and rides.  The game tables were full, with much laughter and banter.

It was a much different story on Saturday as a light rain fell on and off throughout the day into evening.  Those who ventured out carried umbrellas.  Although the rides never closed, there were few takers, and volunteers stood idle at the wheels and games.  The band “Three Piece Nugget” played to a small but stalwart group.

Bernardo is hopeful the weather will break for Sunday, and the final day of the feast will see the crowds return.

New this year is a redesigned beer tent, stage and seating area. 

The township’s annual Columbus Day ceremony begins at noon on Sunday.  The feast opens at 1 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m. “Sounds of the Street” takes the stage at 4 p.m. until close.

Although Sunday morning may see some showers, the forecast for Sunday afternoon is for clearing skies.
