Dumont Day Celebrates Dumont’s Great Spirit
On Saturday September 10th, hundreds of people will come to Memorial Park in Dumont, New Jersey, to celebrate together at the annual Dumont Day Extravaganza. From 10 am through 6 pm there will be all sorts of activities, rides, vendors, food and entertainment from tap dancing to music. Although this is a family oriented event, there is something for everyone to enjoy .
One of the annual highlights is the 5K Dumont Day Run that begins and ends at Dumont High School. There’s also a walk, Kids Run and Kids Sprint. Proceeds from the 5K Run go to Dumont Cares (a local organization that helps Dumont families in need). Other fun events are the chili cookoff which is judged by the Dumont Fire Department. There is also the annual pie contest judged by the Dumont Police Department. And let’s not forget the local band contest which gives young musicians a chance to be heard.
In the evening there is a 9/11 Memorial Service at 7:15 pm, a concert at 8 pm and fireworks. It’s a wonderful annual event that Dumont residents look forward to all year.
Dumont is a town with a strong community spirit and Dumont Day epitomizes this. People who buy a Dumont home soon learn what a special community Dumont is. A true suburban town with tree lined streets, owning a Dumont home gives you a wonderful environment in which to raise your family. Dumont Day is just one of the many advantages its residents enjoy and another reason why Dumont homes are in high demand.
If you’re in the area, come to Memorial Park and join the fun. You won’t want to miss it!
