“Hazlet Day brings our town together, and there is something for everyone,” said Mayor Tara Clark. “We invite all Hazlet residents, and especially our newest residents, to come and enjoy this fun special day.”
For the little ones, there will be a petting zoo with a cow, donkey and goats, and a cute choo-choo train ride in the park. Big kids will love the challenging inflatables like the Extreme Run Slide, Wrecking Ball and Bungee Trampoline & Rockwall Combo.
Everyone can compete against each other at The Rock N Roll Race Cars a game of remote controlled cars on a Super Speedway. “We are so excited to welcome back the Rock N Roll race cars,” said Recreation Director Chris McManus. “The crowd loves them, and its a really fun thing for parents and kids to do together.”
All the amusements are free.
Over 50 Hazlet-community organizations have signed up to come to the fair. They included businesses, crafters, and vendors. There will be 8 food trucks, offering exciting treats and sandwiches. The first responders and volunteers will greet residents and show off their shiny trucks.
Throughout the day there will be entertainment by sensational Perna Dance Studio, precision United Martial Arts and the classic cover band band Time After Time. There will be a professional pumpkin carver demonstrating his art on large pumpkins, and offering tips for home carvers as he goes.
