Delayed a week by weather, volunteer firefighters put on Red Banks annual Fire Prevention Fair in the White Street Parking lot Sunday to educate the community about the importance of fire safety. In light of Fire Prevention Week, the event featured drop-and-roll exercises, above, a fire hose display for kids, informational handouts and free food. And oh, the ever-popular stove-fire extinguishment, below. (Photos by Rebecca Desfosse. Click to enlarge)
More than 150 kids showed up at the Community YMCA in Red Bank Saturday for ‘Kids in the Kitchen,’ a health fair that featured games and activities, including hula-hooping, above, and instruction on how to grow herbs and vegetables, right. The Junior League of Monmouth County participated. (Click to enlarge)
redbankgreen reporter Stacie Fanelli was there for opening night last Friday to capture the swirl of colors and delights. Here’s a selection of her pix.
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend, all!

redbankgreen was on the scene at Evergreen Drive when authorities took David Wilt into custody on Evergreen Drive at about 4 p.m., shortly after authorities in both towns went on alert for a black pickup truck on a report of a break-in.
There’s still a month to go before the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair kicks off its annual eight-day swirl of food and rides, but preparation of more than 150 gallons of homemade clam chowder for the event got underway at the firehouse Monday night.
Shucking and chopping completed, a crew of volunteers gets down to cooking the chowder Tuesday night, after which it will be frozen until the fair, which starts August 26.

Swirling rides and music to match. Chowder. Conviviality.
The annual small-town tradition known as the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair gets underway tonight, staking its usual claim to the week leading up to Labor Day.
Tonight, that is, as long as Danny keeps his distance.
