Fall festival returns to Stratford this October

September 30, 2013 by  

The Stratford Fall Festival is returning to the borough for the sixth year this weekend. A popular annual event, it is presented by the Stratford Business and Civic Association.

Among the many activities slated to take place during the festival are a 5K run/walk event for Autism NJ, two stages of entertainment, carnival rides, games, a car show, a green fair, and a business fair. There will also be children’s activities, such as pumpkin decorating and face painting, a balloon artist, and the zoo on wheels. WMGK radio is broadcasting live from the festival and there will be plenty of food for purchase. Visitors can also have fun with the photo booth.

The fair presents an ideal opportunity for local businesses and artisans to make their names known in the community, and to showcase what they have to offer. It will also be a chance for visitors to get an early start on their holiday shopping.

This annual festival caters to a wide audience and should therefore attract visitors from all over the area, including nearby Berlin. Local printing companies are bound to have been asked to provide items such as banners, signs, and posters to help the organizers prepare.

The Stratford Fall Festival will be held at the Samuel S. Yellin School on October 5, with a rain date of October 6 arranged. Admission is free and a ride pass is available for $10. Contact Laurie Maloney, 856-784-9534, to learn more about the day’s activities.
