Everything Jersey City Festival

The third annual Everything Jersey City Festival took place on Central Avenue. The festival has everything from arts and crafts, to rock climbing, to a petting zoo, to musical acts and dance shows. But mostly ... it has a lot of greasy food!

Despite the abundance of good food, my favorite part of the festival was actually the soccer matches for kids, below.

The Heights is diverse in culture and is home to a lot of Spanish-speaking people, hence the natural interest in soccer. I thought the soccer matches were especially neat considering the 2010 World Cup in about three weeks.

The rock climbing, above, is a must for any festival and the girls, below, did a great job with their dance routine.

Out of the many bands performing at the festival, my favorite was definitely Paddy and the Pale Boys, a North Jersey-based Irish band. Steve Miller, on the fiddle, below, was especially convincing.

Be sure to come to the fourth annual Everything Jersey City Festival next year!
