Celebrate Old Tappan!
Old Tappan Town Day and Night is back again and better than ever for 2017! Join your neighbors from 1 to 6pm on Saturday September 9th (Rain Date Sept 10), at Stone Point Park for rides, attractions, food and fun. It is always a fun time for the whole family.
The Old Tappan Recreation Commission has put together a great event with awesome attractions for the whole family. Many of our town civic volunteer organizations, clubs and committees will also be there to assist and give information about themselves as well.
There will be Bingo for the adults, a new Dunk Tank, Mechanical Shark, a 24′ Climbing Wall, Laser Tag, Giant Slides and Carnival Games. Also back again this year is the Trackless Train, along with the Dixie Twister and an Obstacle Course! Of course you can also let the kids have a ride on the ponies, as well as pet the animals in the petting zoo. Once you are done there head on over to the Face Painting and Henna Tattoo booth to get some body art or to the Balloon Twister to get a crazy hat.
At 5-6pm, there will be a Limited Super Prize Raffle drawing, so get your tickets early, and be sure to enter or witness the Pie Eating Contest at this time as well.
What’s on the menu, you ask? There will be hot dogs, burgers, chicken wings, pasta, sausage and peppers, pizza, pretzels, fruit, ice cream, Sno Cones, cotton candy and of course beverages to wash it all down!
In the evening, there will be a Fireworks and Music Show at the OT Golf Course. The golf course opens at 7pm, and you are asked to park along Dewolf Rd or walk to the course. Expect the fireworks to go off around sundown. Bring a blanket, beach chairs or find a seat along the fairway. If you plan to dine at the Dewolf Inn, it is recommended that you make a reservation. Children’s finger foods will also be available for purchase.
This is always a great event for the people of Old Tappan to celebrate their town and kick off another school year as well. If you haven’t joined us before, make the time to come down and visit with your neighbors. After all, it is the people of Old Tappan that make this such a great town to live in!
