Saturday May 19, 2018
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Pennington’s annual community street fair, traditionally held on every 3rd Saturday in May, celebrates the Greater Hopewell Valley area’s best family fun, food vendors, arts and crafts, music, dance, non-profits and more. Over 5,000 people and 225 unique booth vendors took part in last year’s festivities, with 2018 looking to grow even more.

The day-long event, which takes up the greater part of South Main Street, does more than just entertain - it helps great causes. The funds raised by Pennington Day booth vendors contributes to grants that are awarded to many local civic causes, surpassing $15k in 2017. But the day really is focused on family fun, like the long standing Quilt Show, Coffeehouse Stage and dance performances that delight kids and adults alike.

Saturday May 19, 2018
7:00 PM

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Open Arts PAC, 146 Route 130, Bordentown 7 p.m., $10., www.openartspac.org

The Wizard of Oz is perhaps the most popular children’s story ever written, and here’s a version that’s very simple and economical to stage. This version is exceptionally well-suited for multi-aged groups, with younger cast members playing any number of Munchkins, poppy flowers and winged monkeys. A cyclone carries Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to the magical land of Oz, where they encounter all the famous characters from the pen of L. Frank Baum… the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Woodsman, the rubber-legged Scarecrow, Glinda the Good Witch and the evil Witch of the West, who is determined to destroy Dorothy and steal the secret of the silver slippers. The play is filled with wonderful stage thrills… like the escape from the dark forest of the Fighting Trees. And we don’t want to forget the awesome and funny meetings with the great Oz himself. Eventually Dorothy defeats the evil witch, finds a way to return to Kansas, and her companions have their wishes granted.
