Stilt-walkers, face-painters, and clowns will be present for the children to enjoy.  Live music provided by the Matt Wade Band, and local restaurants will offer dishes for all tastes.

The festivities run all day on Saturday, July 20, with the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society’s Arts and Crafts Festival from 10:00am until 4:00pm in Veterans Park. More than 60 artists and crafters will display and sell their work. The Chamber will have live music, food, and additional vendors along First Ave.
