Middletown Day returns to Croydon Hall on Saturday, September 27th from noon to 6:00pm followed by an anniversary concert and fireworks display.
MIDDLETOWN, N J – Middletown Day 2014 is the pinnacle of a year-long celebration of the township’s founding 350 years ago. The fall festival will feature an anniversary cake created by the legendary Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, the Business and Community Showcase, live demonstrations, and an expanded food court. The Beatlemania Stage Show will begin at 6:00pm. A fireworks display follows 7:30pm to mark the close of the Middletown 350 celebration.
The Business and Community Showcase features local businesses, community associations and school groups that support Middletown. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the many businesses spread across the township’s 42 square miles and meet the volunteers that work so hard to make Middletown a great place to call home.
The day will also include family favorites such as bouncy houses and carnival games, children’s activities, a craft fair, hayrides, live local music, a petting zoo, pony rides, Touch-A-Truck exhibits, and a tag sale.
Middletown Day has opportunities for family learning as well. Learn about nature and colonial times at the Poricy Park Conservancy exhibit; storm water pollution at the Clean Communities display; emergency preparedness at the Emergency Management tent; and fire safety in the Fire Department’s smoke house.
Middletown Day activities and exhibits will close at 6pm. The best place to view the concert and fireworks will be on the football field. A beach chair or blanket is recommended.
Middletown Day, which is sponsored by local business, community groups and individuals, will be held rain or shine. Free shopping bags will be given to the first 1,000 attendees.
Visitors should park at Bayview Elementary School or Kunkel Park and ride the free shuttle to and from the Middletown Day grounds. Continuous round trip shuttle services will be provided every 5 to 10 minutes. Parking very limited at Croydon Hall.
