Wrapping up in scarves, cooking a hearty soup, picking pumpkins and apples…packing away the summer duds and pulling out a few cozy sweaters. For all of its rituals, fall has got to be the most nostalgic season of the year. And this year’s 1st annual Bergen County Fair & Harvest Festival will surely become on of the community’s most beloved traditions.
Benzel-Busch Mercedes is excited to sponsor the Bergen County Fair & Harvest Festival, which will take place at Overpeck County Park (Ridgefeld Park, NJ) between October 25th and October 28th.
The festival will be a hodgepodge of games, carnival rides, music and sport. Local vendors from Bergen County farms will sell produce. There will be a craft fair (presented by Craftivity) and live music. And some of the area’s biggest high school football stars will play in a match between Don Bosco (the 2011 #1 high school team according to USA Today’s National Rankings) and Bergen Catholic on Saturday at 1:00pm.
Finally, in the spirit of Halloween, a Haunted Hayride will be making rounds on Thursday and Friday from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, and on Saturday from 5:00pm to 10:00pm (with the last ride starting at 9:30pm).
