There are two ways of putting on a play for children. You can aim the play at the children, with the idea that their parents will take them to it, or you can have a play for adults to which they can take the children. The Bergen County Players' production of Aladdin is an example of the former. On the other hand, one might say that you are never too old to be a child. And it is, after all, the script from Jim Eiler of the Prince Street Players, who, instead of in-jokes and topical humor, wrote his plays with an air of whimsy. So, if you are ready to be charmed, keep reading the review. If you have children to take, definitely keep reading the review. And if you have to take teenagers, be prepared for them to have to try very, very hard not to smile.

Braving the unsesaonably cold weather and high winds (although probably rather typical for the time), the Bergen County Historical Society, the Third New Jersey Regiment and the Fourth Battalion, New Jersey Volunteers, teamed up to present a weekend of living history at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge on November 23-24, 2013.

Whether it's Oktoberfest or the October Street Fair, Dumont has one every year around this time. Oddly, though, especially since it was co-sponsored by the Dumont Chamber of Commerce, there was a dearth of Dumont businesses involved; even businesses right on Madison Avenue where it was held almost entirely failed to have a presence on October 26th.

For the second year, the Haworth Arts Committee has put on its annual Halloween "Ghost Stories at the Pond." This year, not only did children (and parents) from Haworth showed up, but many from neighboring towns also showed up to be frightened and entertained.

River Edge had its annual Halloween Parade, and it seems that every parent and child in town participated, as goodies were handed out to the kids, cider was handed out to the adults, and a magic show was there for everybody.

On October 26th, the MidBergen area was buzzing with events. But traditions continue, starting with the annual Dumont Halloween Parade, once again hosted (albeit in a reduced form) at D'Angelo Farms on Washington Avenue.
Update 11/3/2013: It seems that D'Angelo Farms has gone out of business. It is nice that they were able to provide one last Halloween Parade, and a shame that they were not more open about their troubles. Perhaps if they had reached out to the community, perhaps something could have been done. Perhaps not. They were friends of MidBergen Communities from the beginning, and we are sad to see them go.
