CALDWELL, NJ — During the first Sunday in October for the 25th consecutive year, the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs of Caldwell teamed up for the Caldwell Street Fair. Both clubs thanked all who participated in the “Silver Anniversary” of the Caldwell Rotary/Kiwanis Street Fair on Oct. 2.
Despite the rain, the street fair closed off a six-block area on Bloomfield Avenue from noon to 5 p.m. and filled it with nearly 200 crafters, vendors and food concessions.
“We were holding our breath because of the weather Sunday morning but once again, we had a great day at the fair,” said JoAnn Dixon of Caldwell Kiwanis. “The kids had a great time, folks found some terrific buys as they met with friends, ate ethnic foods and celebrated ‘Octoberfest’ in the beer garden.”
Proceeds of the Caldwell Street Fair enable both Rotary and Kiwanis to continue servicing the community effectively.
In addition to premier sponsor the Calandra Family, some sponsors included Paul Miller, Caldwell University, Jonathan Barrett AXA Advisors, ShopRite, Paul Ippolito-Dancy Memorial Cloverleaf Tavern, Essex County College, Kearny Bank and many more.
