2015 Newport Beach Party

Hundreds turn out to enjoy 2015 Newport Beach Party

In a somewhat “average day” weather-wise, people still made it out to the Newport section of Jersey City for the 2015 Newport Beach Party.

Attendees enjoyed the free concert by Lee Fields and the Expressions, while sampling food from area restaurants – including Komegashi Too, Loradella’s and Cosi.

I’m just curious, with the population “density” so high in this area – that more people didn’t attend. Were the busy inside watching TV?

Here’s a story-board of what it looked like (scroll your mouse-wheel (if you have one) or “swipe” for the full effect):

13th Annual Newport Beach Party in Jersey City


Newport NJ Beach Party 2015 Jersey CityLooking for something fun to do – but that’s just a few steps away from Hoboken? Then check out the Newport Beach Party tomorrow evening (Wednesday, July 8th). If the weather holds out – you can even catch a movie at Pier A Park on your way home.

Newport’s annual Beach Party, a community food festival on the Hudson River waterfront in Jersey City, happens from 6:30 – 9:30PM.

This year, for the first time ever, the Beach Party will feature a live concert where legendary soul artist, Lee Fields and the Expressions, will perform his greatest-hits.

Lee Fields is currently on a world tour for his latest album and was featured on Last Call With Carson Daly. The event at Newport Green will also feature signature dishes and cocktails from Newport’s most popular restaurants including Battello, Raaz, Loradella’s, Cosi and more.

Hundreds of Beach Party attendees will be enjoying an evening at the only “urban beach” on the Hudson River. This urban beach is complete with nearly 8,000 square feet of authentic, castle-building sand, dozens of Adirondack chairs and large colorful umbrellas.

Here are some photos from last year’s event to give you an idea. Nice to go outside your 4 block comfort zone every now and then, right?

Looked like a nice event. But wow, how insanely diverse this area has become. Mostly foreign born immigrants. Not quite sure this is what they envisioned for America.
