The Warren County Parks Foundation and the Warren County Morris Canal Committee invite you to a family-friendly day of music, art, history, literature and more, at one of the unique spots along Warren County's Morris Canal Greenway. The 2nd Annual ParkFest @ Bread Lock Park from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 features a lawn concert by three different jazz combos - bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on - while artists will be displaying their work inside the barn that dates back to the days of the Morris Canal, and WRNJ radio will be on hand for a live broadcast. Music will come from the Walt Bibinger Trio, led by guitarist Walt Bibinger with Tom DiCarlo, bass, and Bill Goodwin, drums, playing 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; the quartet La Cuchina with Vinny Biachi, sax, Bill Washer, guitar, Paul Rostock, bass, and Danny Gonzalez, drums, 1-3 p.m.; and the Nancy Coletti Quartet featuring vocalist Nancy Coletti backed by Dave Leonhardt, piano, Paul Rostock, bass, and George Torrella, drums. 3-5 p.m. Also on the grounds, look for "Authors Alley" where you'll meet a variety of fiction, non-fiction and children's book authors; a classic car show; local history displays and historical films; food vendors; and other activities. The Warren County History Museum at Bread Lock Park will be open, with artifacts, displays, and working models on aspects of the county's rich history, from the days of our earliest Lenni Lenape inhabitants, to the Colonial period and the birth of the iron industry in the colonies, to the days of the Morris Canal - when the lock tender's wife baked and sold fresh bread to the passing canal boats, giving Lock No. 7 West its nickname - to Thomas A. Edison's nearby cement industry and the first "concrete mile" of roadway in New Jersey, and much more. ParkFest is free, open to all, and reasonably accessible to persons with disabilities. A $1 per car parking donation to the local fire department is requested. Want to be a part of ParkFest with your classic car, your artwork, or your book?
