Bergen County This Weekend +
There is something else I need to mention because it’s such a major event. While it’s not in Bergen County, it’s really next door and so many of us visit there. Nyack, NY, is just above our northern border in Rockland County. This Sunday is the very famous Nyack Street Fair. This is very possibly the biggest street fair you will ever see.
There are over 300 craft and art exhibitors, an amazing assortment of vendors and anything else you can imagine being there. This all day street fair runs from 10 to 5 on Sunday. Just over the border, Nyack is always a popular destination for us. Have fun in Bergen County this weekend and take a trip north to Nyack too!
