Posted by & filed under Bergen County Life, Things To Do.

Just a few things for you since it’s the end of August.  Summer’s end is upon us and that means Labor Day Weekend is coming up marking the end of summer.  It’s time for getting the kids ready for school, a few last minute summer outings and an end to those outdoor summer concerts and movies.

Posted by & filed under Bergen County Life, Things To Do.

Carnival, cars, crafts, wine and more make this a busy weekend for you.  “And More” includes an artisan market in Fort Lee, the Tenafly Nature Center and Shakespeare’s Othello in Englewood, Because so many people are away the end of July and 1st week of August, everything winds down.  As a result, you don’t find a lot of new events happening.  Sometimes none.  It all starts to change around mid…

It’s Summer Time

Posted by & filed under Bergen County Life, Things To Do.

It’s summer time.  There’s not much new this week.  As we get closer to August, there are fewer events going on locally.  This is because it’s vacation time.  People do more things outdoors and wind down on the weekends for those of us who stay home. While I try to write an article about what’s coming up in Bergen County early in the week, there really wasn’t a lot new…

There’s no doubt that another busy weekend is coming up.  Music is a big part of it as we have several events from jazz to symphony standards.  Check your town’s schedule because outdoor summer concerts have become extremely popular.  More towns host them every year as a result.

It’s a fun weekend in Bergen County because we have an impressive assortment of things to do.  I had to write a separate article on the fabulous Arts Ramble 22.  That’s  because it runs through multiple towns with a dizzying array of visual and performance art. We have 8 other events for you to consider.  What you have ranges from a car show to a historical lecture by one of…

It’s Mother’s Day Weekend

Posted by & filed under Bergen County Life, Things To Do.

It’s Mother’s Day Weekend so you’d think not much doing.  There’s more than you’d expect:  a campfire meeting, nature walk, run, 2 plays and a symphony.  It’s also a traditional start to the season. Mother’s Day Weekend here is the start of the gardening season.  People go out to nurseries, buy annual flowering plants and then come home to plant them in the dirt.  I think this year it’s going…

Not Much Is Happening This Week

Posted by & filed under Bergen County Life, Things To Do.

Not much is happening this week as I’m sure you expect.  This is known as Holy Week in the Christian calendar with Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  Passover, an 8 day celebration of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery,  begins at sundown on Friday night. These 2 major religious holidays are the focus of this week as well they should be.  Both involve a lot of preparation…
