Street Closing Sought for Car Show

The mystery of how 200 cars could fit on the Union County Plaza site may now be solved.

For the Aug. 28 event, Recreation Division Superintendent Dave Wynn is now asking for West Second Street between Park and Madison avenues to be closed from 5 to 11 p.m. for a car show and movie viewing. Never mind that the request states a closing of East Second Street instead of West Second Street, we know what you mean.

The item was under “communications and petitions” and would have to be approved by resolution at the Aug. 17 regular City Council meeting. The meeting is at 8 p.m. in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.

The car show and movie are part of the Music in the Plaza event. The first two concerts, from noon to 2 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. were to take place July 31, but apparently bad weather advisories caused them to be postponed. However, the new date was only announced on the same day of the rescheduled concerts.

Besides the car show and movie, there will concerts in the plaza from noon to 2 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 28.

Is the administration still insisting on showing the violent "Fast and the Furious" at the movie night? Just WHO do they think wants to see that film who hasn't already seen it? What about showing a fun movie about cars? We shouldn't be subject to Dave Wynn's or someone else's personal taste. I would NEVER bring children to sit and watch a violent film on the city's dime. What an embarrassment.

The Disney film would be great. It's funny, accessible to children, and adults enjoyed it as well.

I loved Cars. That was a cute movie. As long as they dont confuse it with Used Cars, thats a whole nother movie.
