POINT PLEASANT — The Point Pleasant Chamber of Commerce will host its first annual Borough Fall Fest Sept. 25 at Community Park. 

From 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. attendees can enjoy dozens of vendors, live music, a beer-and-wine garden, an inflatable corn maze and entertainment for the kids. A rain date of Sunday, Sept. 26 is scheduled for Borough Fall Fest.

“I can’t even express how excited we are over here at the chamber for our first ever Borough Fall Fest. Missing out on two Summerfest events wasn’t easy for us and the community really missed them. We had to do something and a fall event has always been something we wanted to try,” Executive Director Gloria DeFalco told The Ocean Star.

“We have over 70 craft, market and food vendors right now. Our Summerfest vendors have expressed how wonderful it is to see we are having this new fall event. We have also gained some new vendors that are looking forward to joining us.

“There will be a kids activity area with an inflatable corn maze, activities for the kids with face painting, balloon twisting, glitter tattoos and much more. Come out and see D Fitness Studio, Devrin Academy of Irish Dance and Extensions Dance Academy, three of our local dance studios, that will be performing during the band changes in the Kids Activity area.”

In addition “we will have a face-in-a-hole photo board that pictures can be taken and shared with #boroughfallfest on social media,” Ms. DeFalco said.

“Live bands all day on stage will be Clarizio Music Studio, Shadetree Mechanics, Andy B.AND Soulfolk and The Get Down Committee. Spectators can sit in the beer-and-wine tent, have a drink while listening to music or play some corn hole.

“This community event would not be possible without the support from Mayor [Robert] Sabosik, [the Point Pleasant Borough] Council, Point Pleasant Borough Police Department and DPW.”
