ROSELLE, NJ - The Roselle community came out in numbers for a celebration like the town has never seen before. The Borough’s annual Multicultural Festival was truly an event you did not want to miss.

This year’s event was a bigger and better event with the addition of “Sweet and Savory”, a Beer and Wine Garden and Food Truck Festival. Of course the help of mother nature who brought a perfect weather day, may have also helped to bring many outdoors to enjoy the event. Along with the mobile cuisine vendors and beer and wine garden was the “Market Place” for vendors selling their goods. 

The festival would not have been complete without the bounce houses, face painting and mechanical bull rides for the kids and lots of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.
