FRANKLIN SPRING FESTIVAL SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 14, 2018
Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci, Commissioner Alphonse Petracco and the Board of Commissioners have collaborated to bring Nutley the “Franklin Spring Festival”. This event promises to be jam-packed with fun for everyone from young to old!!! Be sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, June 14, 2018.
The Franklin Spring Festival will take place on Franklin Ave, between New Street and Stager Street. This event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and run until approximately 10:00 p.m.
Our first performer will be Gerard Esposito. Gerard performs songs of Great Artists, such as, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Englebert Humperdinck, Bobby Darin, Barry Manilow, Franki...e Valli the Four Seasons, Paul Anka and Tony Bennett, along with many other great artists. But don't let these crooner's fool you, Gerard pleases the ear of each fan, performing songs from Vegas to Broadway, as well as what have now become his signature songs, placing an ageless presence.
Our next performance the “Beginnings” are sure to keep the audience moving. They are individually talented musicians who together comprise an ever evolving universe of musicality that encompasses multi-instrumentalists and multiple lead vocalists. Quite simply, they are a band like no other. This depth of talent is focused on the band Chicago, whose song book spans more than forty years, and includes five number 1 albums and twenty top ten hits. Their performances bring to life the music of Chicago, and exceptionally recreate every decade of the band’s hits. Beginnings is a family friendly melodic adventure, pleasing to music lovers of all ages.
“This event helps promote our local restaurants and food establishments while bringing the community together for some spring family fun” stated Commissioner Tucci. Local restaurants will provide outdoor dining and cocktails throughout the concert. We will also be offering fabulous food trucks such as Coney Island Wood Fire Pizza, Spanky’s Gourmet Grub, All Surf No Turf, Cheezen, Philly Fry, Chipstix and much more!
The smell of zeppoles and gourmet crepes will fill the air as we gear up for the spring season. And don’t leave the kids behind because we’re bringing on the games! A Gaming Trailer, which is a 32’ long video trailer complete with Xbox, Wii, Wii U and PS4 gaming systems, Laser Lights and kickin' sound inside to pump up the party, and neon lighting outside for night fun! Kids blow ups, face painting, air brush artists and more will also be available for youngsters to enjoy! “Our goal is to create an experience that entices people to come to Nutley and see what we really have to offer” stated the Commissioner Petracco.
