Weather Putting a Damper on Area Weekend Activities


MILLTOWN, NJ - Even though forecasts look as though Joaquin will head out to sea, New Jersey will still be dealing with some unpleasant weather this weekend. The wet and windy forecast has forced the cancellation of some favorite events.

The 19th annual Milltown Day was called off yesterday. Stacey Waters from the Milltown Revitalization Committee posted on the Milltown Day website that the imposing inclement weather forced officials to call off the popular community-wide event for the first time in the town's history.

Waters explained in the post that due to a combination of a number of factors, Milltown Day could not be scheduled for a later date. However, she did announce the dates for next year. Milltown Day 2016 will be held on October 1 at Boro Park with a rain date of October 2.
