EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - This year's East Brunswick Art and Music Festival held on the field surrounding the Community Arts Center this past Saturday was a resounding success.  The East Brunswick Arts Commission delivered a day full of music, crafts, popcorn, art, beer, smiles, and general merriment that was enjoyed by several hundred visitors between 11:00 and 5:00.

Of course, as always, the real heroes of the day were the members of the East Brunswick Department of Parks and Recreation who ran another seamless event.  Visitors were treated to numerous booths that featured beautiful and innovative artwork that ran the range from furniture to jewelry to superhero costumes on a sunny day that seemed perfect for an outdoor event.  Township committees were also represented with the East Brunswick Youth Council offering face painting and the Arts Coalition offering tickets to this summer's musical Footloose, the first summer production sponsored by the township and Playhouse 22.
