ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Roselle Park Loves Arts! festival, held this past weekend proved to be bigger than previous years with a record number of people coming out to join in on the fun. 

“It’s hard to believe that so much artistic talent could be found in just one place,” said one resident. 

People from all over New Jersey made their way to this community to see what all the talk was about and surely they were not disappointed as Chestnut Street was transformed into a celebration of the arts.
