Festival to be 'a celebration of Millburn Township's rich history and incredible diversity,' says town announcement.
MILLBURN, NJ - On Saturday, Sept. 7, Millburn Township will hold an event marking the culmination of a community art project months in the making that is also meant to showcase the town's diversity.
'Millwheels rolling into Millburn,' is an art installation planned and carried out by the Cultural Engagement Diversity and Arts Committee (CEDA) in town. Multiple civic groups in town were each given a millwheel that they could decorate as they pleased.
The designs are meant to showcase the cultural heritage of various groups in town, as well as the overall history of Millburn. The millwheel is an important symbol of the town's past and is even included on the local seal found all over Millburn.
Yet to be unveiled, each of the finished millwheels will be displayed as part of the afternoon's festivities at the park.
Along with the display of all the millwheels, performances from cultural groups will take place over the course of the afternoon. Additionally, food from local vendors and businesses will be available.
