OLG FunFest 2009
Our Lady of Grace Church and St. Joseph’s in Hoboken will host its fourth annual “Funfest” on Sunday, June 7th from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. A twist to this year’s event will include kicking off the “Funfest” with a “Nightfest” on the evening of Saturday, June 6. “Nightfest” will include a biergarden, BBQ and live music opening from 6-10 p.m. in the OLG church parking lot.
Sunday’s “Funfest,” which will be sponsored this year by Frank “Pupie” Raia and Hoboken Pediatrics, will include various foods, cotton candy, snow cones, music, games of chance and face painting. The Festival will be held in Church Square Park on Willow Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Streets.
In addition, the Festival committee expanded the children’s activities to include pony rides, a Jurassic Survivor Obstacle Course Moon Bounce and World of Sports Game Arena. Hoboken’s own musical group, the Fuzzy Lemons, will perform at various times throughout the day. The Fuzzy Lemons bring toe-tapping tunes, whimsical lyrics and zany audience participation making them an instant favorite with kids of all ages.
“The OLG and St. Joseph’s Funfest looks to be another great day this year especially since we’ve added several exciting new activities for the whole family,” said Father Alex Santora, pastor at Our Lady of Grace Church. “We are looking forward to seeing our old friends as well as making new ones. And we encourage people from the Hoboken community and beyond to come to the ‘Nightfest’ activities on Saturday to enjoy a relaxing evening at a backyard type BBQ.”
