Saturday: Aberdeen Day 2012 Includes Fishing, Singing, and Softball
Aberdeen 2012 is almost here! Which events will you participate in?
Aberdeen Day is tomorrow, but this won't be your typical township celebration.
Rather than just hosting a fair at Matawan Regional High School, all parts of Aberdeen will be included in the festivities with a fishing contest, a talent competition, and a softball game between the police and fire departments.
Don't miss out on any of the fun! Here is a schedule to help you plan your day:
- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Grab your fishing pole and prepare to wrangle an impressive fish at Cliffwood Beach Park. In addition to trophies awarded to first, second, and third place finishers in all three groups, the first place winners in each category will receive a Rod & Reel Combo provided by Crabby's Bait & Tackle.
- 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Matawan Regional High School will play host to several longtime favorites, including a classic car show, displays of emergency services vehicles and equipment, entertainment, children's rides, vendor booths, informational displays by local non-profit organizations, food concessions, and a crafts fair.
DeMarco's and Hand and Stone will have tents in the Bed, Bath, & Beyond shopping center on Route 34. Stop by for free food, raffles or a mini massage.
- 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Talented performers from Aberdeen and the surrounding communities will flaunt their skills as singers, dancers, comedians, magicians and impersonaters. Come see who's got talent at Aberdeen's Got Talent at Strathmore Shopping Center.
- 7:30 p.m.
Batters up! The first pitch of the Mayor's Trophy softball game between the police and fire department will be thrown at 7:30 p.m. at the Fireman's Field.
After the softball game ends and the sun sets, it's time for fireworks! Spread out a blanket on Fireman's Field and enjoy the show with your family.
Plus, if you find your local Patch Editor (which will be very easy if you "Like" Patch on Facebook) at any of these events make sure to say hi! And if you need extra incentive to introduce yourself, I will be carrying around give-aways, such as tote bags, pens, and t-shirts.
