Others towns on the Greater Red Bank Green have their official celebrations of self — most notably the annual Fair Haven Day that’s now an annual staple. But on Saturday, it’s the Borough of Little Silver’s turn to shine, as the first-ever Little Silver Day celebration prepares to fill a summer afternoon and evening with music, food, fun, games, fireworks and reaffirmation of community.
Presented by the nonprofit Little Silver Charitable Foundation and hosted at the borough’s center-of-town recreational field (behind borough hall and adjacent to Markham Place School), the inaugural event will be free for Little Silver residents, with nominal fees charged for food and beverages. It’s all happening from 3 to 10 p.m., with a scheduled rain date of Sunday, June 26.
Little Silver residents and business owners who are interested in becoming contributing sponsors of the inaugural Little Silver Day are invited to attend a cocktail party on Friday, February 5, to meet with event organizers and discuss sponsorship options.
During the event, going on between 7 to 11 pm at the borough firehouse on Prospect Avenue, local merchants will have the opportunity to meet members of the event’s steering committee, and learn more about this summer’s inaugural Little Silver Day, a festival of food, fun and fireworks for all borough residents.
Scheduled for Saturday, June 25, Little Silver Day will feature an afternoon of live music, children’s events, food and adult beverages, and will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display that will light up the night sky (the rain date is Sunday, June 26). The event, which will be held at the borough’s fields behind Borough Hall and between the library and the Markham Place School, is expected to attract about 1,000 locals, and will be free to Little Silver residents (with nominal fees charged for food and beverages to help support the staging of the event).
Many communities around the area feature a special day for their residents — and on June 25, 2016, Little Silver residents are invited to celebrate all of the amazing people, businesses and organizations in their home town, when the inaugural Little Silver Day kicks off with a Saturday afternoon of live music, children’s events, food, adult beverages and a spectacular ending that will light up the night sky.
The event, which will be held from 3 to 9 pm at the borough’s fields between the library and the Markham Place School behind Borough Hall, will be free to Little Silver residents, with nominal fees charged for food and beverages to help support the staging of the event. Volunteer committees have been formed, and plans are well underway for this community event. Little Silver hopes it can become an annual event that will take on added significance in several years, when the borough celebrates its centennial in 2023.
