Among the incomparable delights of life on our beautiful Navesink River is the floating annual bash now known as Artiepalooza.
Centered in Blossom Cove on the Middletown side of the river, roughly opposite Riverview Medical Center, the daylong, boat-based event returns on Saturday bigger than ever, with six musical acts performing on a “raft” of three vessels tied together, as well as this: a pontoon selling Chilangos Restaurant fish tacos that partygoers can preorder by text message.
And it’s all for a good cause.
