While I know that I told you I was skipping this week, I couldn’t resist letting you know that hot rods are coming to Mahwah. Dead Man’s Curve is happening at the Mahwah Sheraton from Sept 1 through the 4th. That’s Thursday through Sunday. Because this is a very major hot rod event, you can bet it will attract people from all over.
Whether or not you’re a hot rod owner, everyone wants to look at them. This is a not to be missed opportunity to see the best on display. In addition, there are 2 memorial runs in Closter this weekend.
Dead Man’s Curve
Dead Man’s Curve is a 4 day blow out car show with everything from cars on display to hot rod era live music parties. If you are a hot rod enthusiast, this has to be heaven. All sorts of hot rods plus vendors selling everything and anything you’d need. Add an ongoing food truck festival, classic cars on display and celebrities. Even Dean of Jan and Dean (surfing music era stars) will be there. Since there is so much going on, the best idea is to go to the website.
This spectacular hot rod show gets more popular ever year; it’s the 6th year they’re doing it. Location is the Sheraton Crossroads Hotel at 1 International Blvd in Mahwah.
Registration Ends Wednesday for Closter’s 5k Run
Sunday morning is when Bergen County’s oldest 5k run is being held. That’s the 41st Dom Mircovich Memorial 5k Run in Closter. Because no one wants to leave youngsters out, there’s the Jim O’Halloran Kids Fun Run Sunday morning too. Since this is a children’s run, the age limit for this is 12 years. All the information you need and registration links are on their website.
Because it’s open on Sundays this summer 2-4, stop by the Mahwah Museum after you go to Dead Man’s curve that day. This small museum is a local treasure and has very special exhibits. People who visit this museum are surprised by what they find because it’s so much more than about trains. There’s a miniature scaled model of Palisades Amusement Park, a trolley retrospective and all about Les Paul (the father of the electronic guitar). The Mahwah museum is at 201 Franklin Turnpike.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
