Street Meet & Meat

Two events happening this weekend! I may have to do eenie meenie miney moe. We almost always do Hoboken but how do we not do Glen Rock? Glen Rock's street fair has grown by leaps and bounds since we moved here in 2006. It used to just be the businesses in the Glen Rock downtown participated. But now it's a "real" street fair. It's probably not as big as Ridgewood's but it's also a smaller downtown in general. If I remember correctly they have a lot for the kids to do too. But Hoboken's Arts & Music Festival is also one of my favorites. I think I missed one since 2003.

Anyway- here are the details-
