The Face of Newark Abroad

Jacksonville Beach

I took a little trip to Florida and couldn’t leave without going to the beach. We arrived at the beach and were surprised to see a festival going on. Of course we headed for a cool frozen drink first and then for food. We ate fried junk food that was mediocre at best. I saw the booth for Bayou Billy’s Sweet Dixie Tea. I liked the souvenir mugs and their amusing promotional song: {“Put some south in your mouth.”} The best part of the deal is free refills for life as long as you bring your mug with you! They’re only in the south and Michigan. I’ll have to talk them into coming to New Jersey.

Though the water was cold, the sun was nice and I had a great time at the beach! I can’t wait to go back later this year.

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 🙂
