Sunday’s ninth annual Fort Lee Arts and Music Festival featured two stages of live music, bounce rides and face painting for the kids, a Harley Davidson motorcycle show, a juried art show, vendors, crafters, a food court in the post office parking lot, a performance by a group of traditional Korean folk musicians and dancers, and for the first time ever, a “green fair,” sponsored by the borough’s newly formed Environmental and Beautification Committee.
The festival took place on Main St. between Lemoine Ave. and Center Ave. and spilled into the municipal parking lot off Center Ave., where the borough provided free parking.
There were over 130 vendors, a police command post in the municipal lot, along with the Harley show, and a Fort Lee Fire Department training vehicles display.
Live music at Stage 1 (Main St. and Lemoine Ave.) included performances by Skyblue Jazz, The Pedal Pushers, Double Tap and The Party Dolls.
At the other end of the festival on Stage 2 (Main St. and Center Ave.), D.J. Nick, Iris Ornig Jazz Trio, Carlos Colina Blues Band and Elliot Piniero and Sumba Swing provided the musical entertainment.
In between the two stages, there was something for just about everyone from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
