Lincoln Park Music Festival

This annual music festival in Newark, New Jersey is a favorite among the locals. Everyone comes out mainly to dance! The food vendors also do very well at these events. I bought an “uptown,” a shrimp kebab and a funnel cake!

I enjoyed the dancing and watching the skateboarding clinic by Kanek, a skateboarding shop in the city. The little kids with their helmets on trying to skate were adorable!

A good time was had by all 🙂

TravelingMad attended the 47th annual African American Heritage Day Parade in Newark, New Jersey. There were marching bands, floats, balloons, and street vendors. This important parade for Newark always draws a huge crowd. I had a blast and was glad to celebrate the festivities of my hometown!
