Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire in 1862 on May 5th.  It’s a major national holiday in Mexico.  Here are 2 great options for celebrating Cinco de Mayo here –

 

Blue Moon Cafe

They have several locations here.  The party goes all weekend from Friday through Sunday night.  Every day is something special so get your friends and have a blast.

Pancho’s Burritos

Pancho’s Burrito’s at 214 Main St in New Milford is always looking for a reason to have a major party.  Cinco de Mayo is one of their major events with live music.  If you want to party hardy go to Pancho Burrito’s on Sunday starting at 11 am and ending at 2 am Monday morning.

Bergen County Zoo

There will be sheep shearing demonstrations all day on Saturday at the Bergen County Zoo  This starts at 10 am and goes through 4:30 pm.  Children have other things to do as well so click on the link I have here for you and enjoy a day at the zoo!

Local Live Theater in Leonia & Oradell

The Leonia Players Guild is opening their performances of Calendar Girls on Friday night.  Performances this weekend are Friday and Saturday night at 8 pm and Sunday at 3 pm.  I’ve gone to productions here and it’s a very intimate theater with great acting.

The Bergen County Players open a production of Neil Simon’s play “Rumors” this weekend.  Show times are 8 pm on Saturday night and Sunday at 2 pm.  If you don’t know about Neil Simon, he is one of our greatest playwrights.

Wyckoff Food Truck and Music Festival

Wyckoff is hosting it’s annual Food Truck and Music Festival this Friday from 5-9 pm.  There will be 12 different food trucks and a live band.  They usually have other things too and in the past featured laser tag.  You don’t have to cook dinner this Friday!  Just go to the Wyckoff Food Truck and Music Festival.  It’s located at the Eisenhower Middle School at 344 Calvin Ct in Wyckoff.

Westwood Crafts Fair & Antiques Show

Westwood NJ is the place to be this Sunday for 2 major fun events.  There will be both a crafts fair and an antiques fair from 10 am through 5 pm.  Held at Veteran’s Park this event draws thousands – and I mean thousands – of people.  So far there are 95 crafts and artists coming and 25 antiques dealers.  As a result, both shows are big with lots to offer.  There’s also food, music and I bet some things for the younger set.  Veterans Park is immediately behind the train station at the intersection of Washington & Broadway.

So here you have it, plenty of things to do this weekend in Bergen County!
