TOMS RIVER– Labor Day will feature something different this year when a township based group hosts the first “Around the World in Toms River” event billed as a “ celebration of culture, heritage, family, friends, food and fun.
The event will kick off at noon on Sept. 2 and will conclude at 4 p.m. at Huddy Park.
Toms River United (Uniting Neighbors In Town Every Day) will be coordinate this free festival. Group members wish to invite the community to enjoy a day filled with music, games, prizes, activities, food and more.
Upon entry, guests will receive a “Passport” to be stamped by each table they visit.
“The idea is to encourage everyone to learn about different cultures and traditions. When we embrace our diversity, we often learn we are more alike than we are different,” Township Police Chief Mitchell Little said. Toms River United formed last year.
Little added that once the passports are completed, the guest will receive a prize (while supplies last).
The group’s mission statement is to simply serve as “influential community leaders and representatives from Toms River bringing forth ideas and solutions designed to reach across all civic, cultural and faith-based traditions to educate and build bridges for all members of our community.”
“We hope you will join us in this awesome community day,” Little said.
