Thank you for a great event!

On a picture-perfect Autumn day, Downtown Toms River presented the HARVEST ARTS FESTIVAL along Washington Street on Saturday, October 20th.

Attendees got to experience a potpourri of artists, including: Juried Fine Art, Potters, Glassworks, Photographers and more, in addition to vendors and crafters.

The event rocked with entertainment from XL Jazz Band, shoreShot x Ewald, and The Blues Collar Band ! There were rides and pumpkin decorating for the kids and a beer garden for the adults, sponsored by Fire Co. #1.

There is still time to vote for your favorite Scarecrow! Ballots are available at participating restaurants with a poster in the window. Ballots will need to be dropped off at the Downtown Toms River BID office at 53 Main Street from October 15 to October 31, 2019 More
