There will be a marketplace that will consist of 25-30 crafters, retailers, local businesses and other vendors.

This year, proceeds from the festival will go toward the $100,000 Vamp Up Vet Field project. Veterans Memorial Field is the only turf field in Denville and is used for football, cheerleading, rugby, lacrosse and soccer. Last year's funds were used to install ADA-compliant bleachers, a press box, a scoreboard and a sound system. This year's proceeds will be applied to the project's finishing touches.

The Vamp Up Vets Field Committee urges everyone to purchase tickets online by midnight, Sat, Oct. 5. Along with getting a 50 percent discount on general admission tickets, online ticket holders will be granted early admission.

General admission tickets cost $10 each at the gate ($5 online) for adults and children 15 years old and up; children under 15 get in for free. Wristbands for the inflatables are $15 each online and $20 each at the gate. Unlimited laser tag costs $10 online and $5/game at the festival. Food and beverages are purchased separately.

While the Food Truck & Family Festival is for everyone, pets are not allowed on the field.
