Summer has only just begun, but the summer festival calendar in New Jersey is in full effect, chock full of events dedicated to food, music and community fun.

Maybe you want to pick some blueberries in the birthplace of the fruit's cultivation. Maybe you want to take a ride in a hot air balloon overlooking summer greenery. Maybe you want to eat some barbecue ribs while listening to Foghat. And maybe you want to eat your weight in seafood, tacos or Jersey tomatoes.

There's a festival for that.

Survey our list of summer festivals below to help plan your weekends, day trips and other outings this season.

** ** we made the list ** **

July 4: Freedom and Fireworks Festival, Jersey City

Snoop Dogg headlines the fifth edition of Jersey City's Fourth of July celebration, the Freedom and Fireworks Festival, which runs from noon to 10 p.m. on July 4. The festival's carnival and pyrotechnic display will be at Exchange Place (Montgomery Street at the Hudson River) with fireworks by Grucci after sunset; www.freedomandfireworks.com

New racetrack idea pitched for in and around Liberty State Park
Updated 11:01 AM; Posted 11:01 AM (2018)

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — A Formula One racetrack and stadium is being proposed for a swath of land in and around Liberty State Park, a project its supporters say would help revive the state's economy but which park advocates call "obscene."

The mile-and-a-half stadium, which would include seating for over 10,000 people, would be located where a cluster of industrial properties sit east of the New Jersey Turnpike toll booth. The properties are surrounded by the park but are not owned by the state.

6/13/2018: The new Wonder Bagel at the JC/Bayonne City Line Plaza is now open. I had to go into the DMV for a renewal which amazingly only took 10 minutes saw the Grand Opening sign so I stopped in for a dozen. Nice place. I find it interesting that the bagels taste and size are different in the many Wonder Bagel locations.

Meet Pongo, Ben and Barbara -- and why they owe thanks to Port Authority

Updated Jun 7, 3:20 PM; Posted Jun 7, 3:08 PM

The Jersey Journal

For three decades, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has been helping to keep an endangered species well-populated in the area.

Since the 1980s the bi-state agency has maintained nesting towers besides each of its bridges for the use of peregrine falcons, according to the Port Authority.

This county is booming, but most Shore areas haven't recovered their mojo. Here's the breakdown

Posted June 03, 2018 at 07:00 AM | Updated June 03, 2018 at 07:05 AM

By Erin Petenko | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

New Jersey's population hit a major milestone this year: 9 million residents, a number it's been flirting with since 2013. And with the release of the latest population estimates from the Census, some cities should be celebrating, too. Hudson County is booming, Central Jersey is steadily thriving and Newark and Jersey City are battling it out for the title of largest city in the state.

Those gains come in stark contrast with far North and far South Jersey, where rural populations are seeing steep drops. And the Shore has yet to bounce back from Hurricane Sandy, if it ever will.

N.J. rejects Liberty State Park marina plan

Updated 3:25 PM; Posted 2:55 PM (5/31/2018)

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — State environmental officials have rejected a Texas company's push to build a new marina on the southern end of Liberty State Park, granting a second victory in four weeks to park advocates who have fought efforts to add commercial ventures to LSP.

The decision by the state Department of Environmental Protection, which oversees the 1,200-acre state park, was confirmed to The Jersey Journal by a DEP spokesman on Thursday. The plan would also have allowed Suntex Marinas to lease 10 more acres of park land for the marina it runs on the northern end of the park.

DOT in final countdown to reopening Pulaski Skyway

By Larry Higgs lhiggs@njadvancemedia.com,

NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

The $1 billion Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project that's left detoured drivers grinding their teeth for the last four years is will be reopened in the next few weeks, state DOT officials said.

Motorists will get their first chance to drive on the new southbound lanes this weekend when traffic is shifted from the new northbound lanes so crews can remove temporary guardrails, do minor paving, and other work, said Stephen Schapiro, a DOT spokesman. The Skyway has been closed to northbound traffic since April 2104.

‘My name is Amy, not Tom DeGise’

Daughter of county executive runs for HCDO chair

by Al Sullivan
Reporter staff writer
May 27, 2018

Seated in a back booth at the VIP Diner, a well-known Jersey City political hangout for nearly a half century, Amy DeGise didn’t look remotely out of place.

The daughter of County Executive Tom DeGise is running to become chair of the Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO) the longtime county political organization, challenging state Sen. and Union City Mayor Brian Stack.

So it was fitting that she sat down to talk to The Reporter in a place where members of the old guard of Jersey City have long met. But DeGise has big plans to revamp and modernize the HCDO if she is elected on June 12 by a vote by committee people throughout Hudson County.



“Some believe that she is running in order to guarantee that her father, Tom, will have the Democratic line in 2019. But Amy said she would not automatically give the line to her father if she gets to be chair, or, for that matter, any of the current incumbents for any county or state elected office.”

** *****
Hmmm….

HudsonCountyView 3/8/2018: Healy, Boggiano, Walker among Jersey City politicos backing DeGise for re-election.

“ Walker, Ward D Councilman Michael Yun, Jersey City Board of Education Trustee Amy DeGise, Tom’s daughter, ex-Assembly members Joan Quigley and Sean Connors, as well as former Councilmen Peter Brennan and Ben Lopez, also endorsed DeGise.”

PS – believe it or not there used to be a pretty good sized movie theater in one of the stores along the Plaza.

..........This is a problem that Fulop, he did not reach out to the community when he did the demolition nor closed Newark Avenue for the mall. Fulop has abused the executive privilege. The Faulkner Act is limited as to his executive privilege. Only the city council can create laws that affect the public such as closing streets, unless there is an emergency or stop demolition. Fulop withdrew his executive privilege when it came before Judge Bariso so the case was dropped. I am sure the judge would have ruled his executive privilege as not valid. Fulop is wrong for not reaching out and making a decision with community input..


Gee wasn't the creation of the Newark Avenue Plaza a long drawn out process with a trial period of 3 months and then community meetings to gather input if it should be made permanent?

I think so....

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City is considering whether to buy the 100-acre Bayfront site on the Hackensack River waterfront, a potentially $180 million plan that Mayor Steve Fulop told council members would be an "aggressive" albeit expensive way to ensure a large amount of affordable housing on the city's west side.

I agree, but that's $$$. I think they are repaving the street at some point (eliminate the curb), but even that undertaking was a big budget item last I heard, thus the delay.


Interesting all they have to do is remove/peel the blacktop that was used to cover the cobblestones. (there must be some sort of machine that can do that) As you probably know all of JC’s streets were cobblestone at one time. In the 80’s a cobblestone was a hot commodity so much so that there was a shortest of them. In NY, Philly and Jersey City where a few cobblestone streets were still around thieves were ripping up whole streets and selling cobblestones.

Jersey City remains at number one despite many changes to the list. Its more than 25 percent annual increase has been a boon to its population, but it came at a cost: The city recently conducted its first property assessment in decades, raising taxes in the downtown area.
