The annual scarecrow contest and pumpkin painting are just two of the family-friendly fall fun activities on tap this Sunday as the annual Thompson Park Day festival lights up the Lincroft headquarters of the Monmouth County Park System.
The all-too-brief Local Summer may be morphing into warm and fuzzy memories by this point, but as long as the daylight-savings sun continues to shine, the waterways and wooded paths of the Greater Red Bank Green continue to find ways to tempt residents away from the sedentary pleasures of TV sports and other great-indoors diversions.
As evidence, we offer up this Saturday’s Classic Boat Show on the Navesink (see story here) — and on Sunday, the annual return of Thompson Park Day.
Some scenes from Saturday night’s activity atRed Bank Riverfest in Marine Park, where Tramps Like Us, above, delivered a rousing set of Springsteen covers to a large crowd gathered on the hillside overlooking our beautiful Navesink River.
The weekend-long festival resumes Sunday at 11 a.m., running until 6 p.m., with more perfect festival weather forecast: mostly sunny, with temperatures in the low 80s.

JoBonanno and the Godsons of Soul kicked off the fifth annual edition of Red Bank Riverfest under cool, clear skies in Marine Park Friday night.
The weekend-long festival resumes Saturday at 11 a.m., running until 10 p.m., with more ideal weather forecast to accompany the full slate of food, music, crafts and river excursions. Sunday? Well, we’ll see if the rain holds off.

Americana troubador Kevin John Allen and sibling act Justin & Alina are among the live and local performers entertaining at Riverfest 2015 beginning Friday evening.
More than anything else, it’s about the music; a sonic smorgasbord of local-organic talent that’s every bit as much a source of Jersey pride as the plump and juicy product of our Garden State farms.
When the fifth annual edition of Red Bank Riverfest pitches its tents and stages at Marine Park for another three-day stay starting Friday night, it’ll once again stake the borough’s claim to one of the major keynote events of the season, a tradition with roots in the modestly scaled Red Bank Food Festivals of yesteryear, and the big-league Jazz and Blues events at the century’s switch.
