Ridgefield Park Street Fair

19-September-2017
    On Saturday-15- September the Village of Ridgefield Park  held their annual street festival.  Local shops and vendors, along with a number of community organization set up on Main St. to show their wares and to give out information to passers by. There was bounce houses and climbing  areas to entertain  the Children at the north end.  There was a train ride available on Mt. Vernon St, and pony rides at the southern end of the fair. In between were numerous shopping opportunities. To take a break from shopping there was a chance to sample food items from the local restaurants and bakeries. 
 Community groups included the Volunteer Rescue Squad, Volunteer Ambulance Squad and the Ridgefield Park Police Dept.  These First Responders greeted the passers by and explain how they keep the community safe. They also answered questions on how to apply to join one of the organizations. The Ridgefield Park Green Team had a booth to talk with  anyone in attendance how to make the Village a more environmentally sustainable place to live.  At one moment during the fair 
Ridgefield Park Green Team made a special presentation to Gina the Baker honouring their achievement of being a Certified Green Business in Ridgefield Park.  Some local sporting groups including The Ridgefield Park Cheerleaders and the Ridgefield Park Lady Scarlets basketball team held bake sales to raise money to assist with their programs.  Along with The Ridgefield Park Moms had a booth to work with other Parents of school age Children living in Ridgefield Park  
   With a sunny, warm afternoon the festival was full with people taking a  Family walk down Main St. to see the sights, meet up with friends and have some treats.
