Fall Festival offers treats, artworks, children and pooch marches

By Patty Booth O'Neill

Some were alarming, some were unique, all were cute – children and pets.

Saturday was ideal climate for the Fall Festival supported by the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce and Pier Village.

There were a lot of rides and exercises for the children, make tables with gems and garments and considerably more with a vivacious DJ that kept things moving. To the pleasure of everybody, there were a lot of costumed characters wandering around, interfacing with the children and posturing for photographs.

"This is one of my preferred occasions held here," said Nicole Gilford, head of promoting for Pier Village. "After this we start getting ready for the Tree Lighting in December, another of my top choices."

The evening began with the Pooch Parade with more than 45 mutts and proprietors flaunting their ensembles, the most dishes up until this point.

"This occasion gets greater consistently," said Chamber Executive Director Nancy Kleiberg. "We're very appreciative that Pier Village offers to help support it with us."

The occasion began in West End, yet lost that space after the road and walkways were reconfigured.

"Dock Village offered to hold it, and for reasons unknown, it's an ideal match."

Canine proprietors were not kidding about sprucing up and the mutts were insane as they strutted along the footpath to be made a decision on their outfits.

The children at that point march around, however not judged, and afterward went stunt or treating at the stores.
