Beautiful weather for Charter Day 2012 in Basking Ridge NJ!

The main event of the day was centered around a street fair in the middle of downtown Basking Ridge, which was closed to vehicular traffic, with many local businesses, community groups and service organizations in attendance. As you can see from the photos below, the weather was perfect for  such an outdoor event with bright sunny skies, no wind and temps in high 70’s and low 80’s.

The air was filled with the smell of delicious food from local eateries and food vendors with all kinds of goodies including hamburgers and hot dogs, lemon ice, and even an old fashion ice-cream truck with attendants in full vintage white uniforms complete with bow ties.  There was also plenty of music, featuring a DJ at the main stage on Finley Avenue with Karaoke, and an appearance by a popular local band “Hoi Polloi”, later in the evening.  There was also a “Battle of the Bands” for teenagers and other students on a separate stage on Henry Street during the day.
