“Thank you to everyone that came out for the Townwide Block Party yesterday! It was an amazing day hanging out and enjoying a perfect day with great music, great food, and our awesome community. A special thanks to The Dad Band and the Township Council for helping make it a special day! We’ll see you next year!” ~ Township of Verona, NJ

Yesterday, residents of Verona, NJ, gathered outdoors at the township’s municipal green referred to as the “Town Square,” to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of family fun activities, live music, and refreshments.

The block party began at 11am and offered free refreshments donated by local businesses.

Children were kept busy drawing in the chalk art area and enjoyed the cornhole boards and other family-friendly yard games which were available in the grass. Many of the activities were provided by members of the Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC).
