5 Favorite Things In and Around Madison, NJ - 9/23 - 9/29

  1. The kids are back in school. The leaves are starting to turn. There's a change in the air. And there are some fun things going on all around us this week.

Morristown Festival on the Green

I absolutely love this festival!! There is so much to do, and eat!! Most local restaurants have food stands. Local artists have lots to see and local organizations and non-profits have lots to teach. Plus, a ton of live music. 150 participants in total. Make sure to bring cash with you. Hopefully, the Montclair Art Truck is back again this year. Everyone is welcome to help create a community art project. It's so cool.

There will also be films, laser shows, and other fun activities, including Wildlife Challenge—open just for members for one last night (weather permitting). Plus free parking, 10% discounts in the cafe and store, and all the fun of LSC's general-admission exhibits. Liberty State Park, 222 Jersey City Boulevard, Jersey City (201)253-1439
