The Ninth Annual Bayonet Farm Arts & Music Festival played out on a flawless Fall day on Sunday at 41 Middletown Road.
A Festival Board Member, Carol Beckenstein, said an estimated a record 700 children and adults came to roam the 240-acre grounds of the historic Harding estate, and partake of the numerous art activities and performances under the tents, in the red and grey barns, or on the grounds.
There was a juried art competition and sale, an "En Plein Air" contest, and awards presentations. The Artist Reception was sponsored by Dearborn Market.
Food was served up by Holmdel's Cracked Olive and the Holmdel Fire Company #1.
Decorations were supplied by Bayshore Greenhouses of Holmdel.
Corporate supporters were the Law office of Lawrence W. Luttrell and The Killian Firm, and the Festival Committee Board Members: Carol Beckenstein, Janet Berk, Zabel Miracle, Vicktoria Scotto-Lavino, Sede Spang and Katie Stone.
Numerous adult and student volunteers contributed to the success of the day, including Phyllis Amenduri, Kyle Galante, Abbi Finch, Joanne Kelly and Mike Rauchwerk.
Shannon Tang designed the festival logo.
