Citizens and Science: Partners
Thanks to all our exhibitors
and vendors! Couldn’t do it without you!
Not wanting to sound like a broken
record but the Barnegat Bay Festival gets bigger and better
every year! The weather could not have been more perfect
and we estimate nearly 4,000 festival attendees enjoyed
themselves! It was wonderful to see so many people taking
in the exhibits, arts and crafts, and food, and
participating in the programs and interactive events. Just
walking about we met a lot of first timers who can’t believe
they missed it in the past!
A long-time environmentalist,
teacher and Island Heights’ resident shared with me that she
thought this year’s exhibitors had the best tables yet! She
felt they were more informative than ever and really engaged
those who stopped by. It was a real “teaching” experience!
it’s all of you who make it an
amazing festival! The exhibits, the remarkable arts and
crafts, the business vendors who share in our mission and
the wonderful selection of festival food added to an energy
and excitement about the Barnegat Bay that keeps growing
For those of you who continue to
come year after year, thank you for your commitment to this
important festival. For the newcomers, we hope you enjoyed
the event as much as we enjoyed having you as a participant
and will continue with us in the future.
Once again, a huge thank you to
the Barnegat Bay Foundation and to Executive Director Mary
Ann Bageac. As a result of yet another successful gala under
the tents on Friday night, the
Foundation is proud to co-sponsor and financially support
the Festival again next year.
