It was a perfectly crisp autumn day.
Green, white and yellow balloons danced in the breeze along South Orange Avenue and Hayes Street in Newark, a corner that was transformed into a one-day street festival that brought together residents of the neighborhood and New Community staff.
Hosted by New Community, the 32nd Annual Street Festival was a fun-filled occasion for community members—from children to seniors—who enjoyed music, entertainment and food in a family-friendly environment. Youth of all ages participated in activities offered in the Kids Zone and adults 21 and up enjoyed the beer garden.
New Community thanks all the partnering agencies, vendors, staff and volunteers who helped make the festival possible.
