21st Annual Fanny Wood Day Set For September 18th

The Borough of Fanwood is proud to announce our 21st annual Fanny Wood Day. The celebration will take place on Sunday, September 18th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Fanwood. People of all ages and interests are invited to attend.
This year’s Fanny Wood Day will feature live entertainment, a classic car show, vendors, and a wide variety of activities. The event will include kid-friendly events such as a water balloon toss, scavenger hunt, and pet parade. Also returning from last year are the contests such as the pizza, ice cream and cream pie-eating contests.
The classic car show will be dedicated to the memory of classic car enthusiast, Don Wussler. Wussler was a dear friend of the Fanwood community who passed away this year. The show will feature classic cars of many different makes and models and will start at 11 a.m. on South Avenue, just east of Martine Avenue. There is no charge to enter a car in this show. Day of show attendees are welcome, however it is suggested that you pre-register your vehicle to help with planning.
The 6th annual Fanwood Photography Contest will be held in tandem with the borough’s annual Fanny Wood Day celebration. Photographers of all ages are invited to submit up to three of their best images. While there is no requirement that submissions be of Fanwood subject matter, local scenes related to Fanwood will be one factor in the judging along with originality, emotional content and presentation.
Submissions must be framed and wired for hanging. Entries should be dropped off at Fanwood Borough Hall, 75 N. Martine Avenue, before 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 8 to be eligible.
Registration forms and event details are available at fanwoodnj.com.
