CARLSTADT, N.J. — The annual Carlstadt School Picnic will celebrate its 150th anniversary on June 18 with food, games, rides and a children's parade.
“There are still a lot of details to be worked out and a lot of very excited people on the committee proposing great ideas,” said Carlstadt Council President David Stoltz, a member of the planning committee. “Everyone wants to make sure that this year’s event is memorable given the significance of what we are celebrating.”
The School Picnic will begin at 11 a.m. with the "Children's Parade" march from the Carlstadt Civic Center to Carlstadt Public School. The picnic will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Carlstadt Mayor Craig Lahullier said he is overwhelmed by the number of participants.
“We always have a very committed group of people involved but this year the support has grown dramatically to the point that we practically ran out of space in our meeting room," the mayor said. "It is definitely a good problem to have.”
