Bordentown City’s Annual Street Fair

Bordentown City, NJ is a town rich in history and offers a lot of events that happen every year. It’s where I was born and raised. After living in MA for college, Philadelphia for work and then Los Angeles for 10+ years, I’ve been back home since October 2008. It’s a little town that has a good quality of life to raise a family, great schools, and centrally located to NYC and Philadelphia and just a 3 hour drive(give or take) to Washington, DC.

Every year we have our Annual Street Fair in May and thousands of people come to my town to stroll down the main street that is closed off to buy handmade goods, eat from our local restaurants and listen to music, and have fun with the kids.

The Foundation for Bordentown Traditions is a non-profit started by members of the community. They were organized to plan, develop, organize and fund community events in Bordentown. It is their goal that these events will raise funds to bring back the Fireworks. I volunteered a couple of hours at this booth getting donations and people to purchase 50/50s. It was a lot of fun talking to people and catching up with friends.

Above, Foundation for Bordentown Traditions members L-R Christopher Nunn, Suzanne Wheelock and Katy McGowen discuss the fundraising board in front of their booth. Below Suzanne “models” with the board, Vanna White style, she is so cute isn’t she?
