The third annual Red Bank Community Block Party attracted over 500 present and former residents to Drs. James Parker Boulevard Saturday. Music, handicrafts, food, children’s rides and information booths greeted the all-ages crowd.
“I think we were actually closer to a thousand,” said party committee president Eddie Russell. Attendees came from Virginia, the Carolinas, Maryland and as far away as California, as well as nearby towns. (Photos by Sarah Klepner. Click to enlarge)
Generations of former and present Red Bank residents gathered on Drs. James Parker Boulevard over Saturday for a block-party style “family reunion,” complete with street fair food, jewelry for sale and a band composed of longtime friends playing together just for the occasion.
“Everybody was really raised by a village when we were younger,” said Patty Lewis, who now lives in Ocean. “That’s what makes this so special.”(Photos by Stacie Fanelli. Click to enlarge.)
