KENILWORTH, NJ – Thousands of Kenilworth residents came out on Sunday to enjoy the Kenilworth Street Fair and Car Show, presented by the Kenilworth Borough.
The event used to be held in the fall, but was moved to spring so residents could enjoy nicer weather, according to Kenilworth Mayor Anthony DeLuca. This year’s street fair fell on a warm and sunny day, perfect for families and children attending to spend time at the petting zoo, participate in games and rides, and enjoy the local vendors.
“We had a lot of people come,” DeLuca said. “I’m very happy about the outcome. Credit to all the people involved that worked hard in order to create the event and thank you to the DPW, Police Department and Fire Department for making it all happen.”
Although an exact number was not determined, DeLuca said that approximately 10,000 people attended the street fair, which ran from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“It was nice the whole day through,” DeLuca said. “Thank you to the people of Kenilworth for letting us do this. If any residents have suggestions or anything they’d like to talk to me about for next year, I’m always willing to listen.”
