Livingston Summerfest will also feature a Food Truck Festival & Craft Fair in the LHS parking lot from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; the annual Town Pool Open house sponsored by St. Barnabas from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; and a Livingston Sunrise Rotary-sponsored Duck Race at Littell's Pond from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

“Everybody so far has been very positive about this,” said Maynard. “Livingston is a really fun town and I really think the residents and visitors will want to see this again.”

The Food Truck Festival & Craft Fair will occur rain or shine, with the LHS cafeteria available for diners if weather does not permit. The Food Trucks feature local restaurants, chains, and exclusively truck fares like Empanada Guy, House of Cupcakes, Cold Stone Creamery and the Angry Crab Food Truck. The Craft Fair includes vendors such as Doll Clothes, Cathy’s Crochet and Artsy Souls.

Livingston resident Scott Maynard, known for heading one of Essex County’s most popular July 4 celebrations, proposed the idea of Summerfest to the mayor and township council after attending East Hanover’s Food Truck Festival. Eager to bring what according to Maynard is a fun and modern trend to Livingston, he suggested combining a new Food Truck Festival, along with the annual Duck Race and Town Pool Open House into one celebration.

The newly combined festivities will replace the annual Memorial Day Circus, a decision which Maynard felt was appropriate. According to Maynard, the circus remained largely the same over its 18-year run and town residents held a negative attitude toward the event, which led the township council to eliminate the tradition.

“If you take something away you should really bring something in and I think that what we planned will be a great event for the town,” said Maynard.

Maynard expects more than 7000 people to attend this year’s Summerfest, thanks to word of mouth as well as a social media presence organized by Judith Heller, Livingston Communications Coordinator. Maynard said he hopes that Summerfest becomes an annual event that residents look forward to.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
