Carteret Prepares For Weekend Of Celebration

CARTERET–For over 35 years, the arrival of September in Carteret has brought with it the town’s Ethnic Day Festival, a day full of entertainment, foods, and crafts that celebrates the diversity that characterizes this suburban community. With the introduction of the Children’s Charity Trust Fund in 2003, Mayor Dan Reiman has since expanded the festivities to four days with the Children’s Charity Carnival and Charity Car Show.
