West Orange

After a highly successful Holiday Open House last month, Downtown West Orange Alliance has put forth its lineup for upcoming events for the new year.

Make sure to don your best green attire and grab your favorite lager as Downtown West Orange will hold its time honored 67th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade right on Main Street on Sunday, March 11. Attendees can look forward to the usual marching bands, bagpipes and other sights and sounds to go along with a delicious plate of corned beef and cabbage.

The following day, West Orange will kick off its second annual Restaurant Week, wrapping up on March 17. With more than two dozen of West Orange’s most popular dining establishments onboard to participate, the weeklong event is not to be missed, giving ample opportunity to sample some of the best dishes in town from a variety of wonderful restaurants.

Nearing the start of summer, the West Orange Street Fair will return once again on June 2, just in time to bask in the sun while perusing various food and craft vendors and taking in live entertainment.

The West Orange Talent Show will take place at Edison school grounds from noon to 7 pm on July 21 bringing together a slew of tasty food trucks and spectacular local talent.

West Orange’s Harvest Festival will be on October 13 at OSPAC.

The city will then wrap up the year with a nice red and green bow once more with its annual Christmas Celebration, featuring its Breakfast with Santa, guided trolley tours, Christmas tree lighting and more, on December 1.
