Let’s start with Englewood’s 4th of July celebration. This annual event is held on the Dwight Morrow High School front lawn.

However weather is not cooperating so it’s been canceled and will again be rescheduled. I’ll let you know when they set a date.

Because this is a recreation of vintage baseball, rules of the day along with authentic uniforms is what you’ll see and experience. Go to the website for information and ticketing.
Demarest Farms Movie Night
Demarest Farms is one of Bergen County’s remaining farms. From home backed goods to petting zoos, this year round staple has been feeding residents here since the 19th century. More than a simple faborm stand, this is also a place where you teach the younger set about animals, horticulture and the environment.
Because of the devastating effects of Covid last year, they came up with a novel approach. They brought back the old fashioned drive in movie. People flocked to their movie nights. It was safe, fun and a chance to get out of your house. Since it was so popular, they’ve brought it back. So if you haven’t gone so far this summer, check out their schedule for this weekend starting on Friday night.
