Many families felt the first waves of summer during North Bergen’s Sixth Annual Green and Health Family Festival at the Rec Center on Saturday, June 1st.
“Every year keeps on getting bigger and bigger as you can tell,” Tom Stampe from the North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority (MUA) said.
Outstanding dancers and musicians performed while families waited in line for the fair attractions. The many activities included rock climbing, a petting zoo, face painting, food vendors, music, and much more. The North Bergen Health Department and the MUA join forces each year to put together this event for the community to enjoy.
Inside, over 70+ vendors and sponsors set up tables to provide more information on health and the environment for anyone interested in learning more.
Hudson TV spoke with Mayor Nicholas Sacco and representatives from both the health department and MUA during the event.
