Van Houten Ave Street Fair
This Sunday, September 18th

CLIFTON, NJ – The Athenia Business Association of Clifton presents its 14th Annual VAN HOUTEN AVE STREET FAIR which will be held on Sunday, September 18th from 11 am to 5 pm. Van Houten Ave will be transformed into a giant town block party, a pedestrian marketplace – exhibitors displaying their merchandise, a host of vendors, food, a stage with entertainment & music, rides for the children, and much more! Live entertainment by Swingman & The Misfit Mutts Band and The Garrett Mountain Boys; a martial arts demonstration by the Clifton Martial Arts Academy at 12:30 p.m.; a performance by Clifton High School’s Mustang Marching Band at 2 p.m., and Medieval Times will showcase sword fights between the knights.  Also this year, Cliffhanger Productions will bring an added attraction – a 300 ft zipline (31/2 stories tall). We would like to invite merchants, civic groups and non-profit organizations to become a part of this event. Note: The ABA is also looking for more vendors.  For more information about prices, etc., please call 201-410-1686 or 973-778-7837, or e-mail (attn. Chris).
