Street Closing Sought for Car Show
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.
