North Bergen’s 5th Once-a-year Vintage Car and Bicycle Demonstrate took about the north finish of Bergenline Avenue on Sept. 19. The crowd ranged from toddlers on tricycles to seniors reminiscing about their classic rides.
Reinvented for the pandemic era, the function skipped the judges, speeches, and awards of earlier a long time and as an alternative made available a simple day of viewing up shut the amazing collection of stunning autos.
An afternoon of enjoyment
Freeholder Anthony Vainieri, who arranged the celebration with the participation of the North Bergen Law enforcement Office, was on hand from early morning ’til night time to verify out the cars and trucks and greet attendees.
On social media, Vaineiri mentioned the party was “just a wonderful afternoon to walk all-around and admire the cars.”
Mayor Nicholas Sacco, Commissioners Julio Cabrera and Allen Pascual, and quite a few township officials and personnel had been also onsite.
At first held as a fundraiser for the Special Olympics, this year’s celebration skipped the charges and fundraising.
As an alternative, it was a enjoyment, social working day to get out of the dwelling, take pleasure in the weather, and snap pictures of the 150 or so cars, while classic rock and roll tunes played in the history.
The show coincided with the township’s “Eat and Shop Local” celebration, which shut Bergenline Avenue to traffic from 76th to 85th Road for eating places to develop into the avenue.
Some dining places delivered dwell tunes to enrich the experience as people dined outdoors on tasty worldwide delicacies.
