The gorgeous Saturday we have all been waiting for! And with that, a reminder of all the great things going on in #OurHoboken this weekend.

I cannot gush enough about this production that I saw last night (click pic for a video of one scene). For those unaware, Hoboken Public District School’s award winning (click on both) theater department puts on a District-wide production each year – this means it includes kids of all ages and grades. This year’s is the musical rendition of The Addams Family. I saw it last night and it was just amazing! The four Hoboken students in the main roles as Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday and Uncle Fester bring you right back to the movie starring Anjelica Houston, Raul Julia, Christina Ricci and Christopher Lloyd in the same roles. The crowd laughed and cheered many times. The set was incredible using projection technology for the first time. And the orchestra of professional musicians rounded out this incredible production. And… the pic below, if you click it, shows all the littlest actors in action – who doesn’t love to see four year olds dressed as trees and dancing… (the entire audience cheered!).
HOBOKEN’S IRISH FESTIVAL
Today – noon to 6pm at Sinatra Park near the waterfront. Free and fun for the whole family!
HELP GIVE OUR HOMELESS VETERANS A HOME
Tonight from 630-930pm at the NEW American Legion at 308 Second St.
Be part of this amazing community opportunity to help raise the final $100,000 needed to complete six homes for homeless veterans in Hoboken and to rebuild our American Legion Post 107. You can buy tickets for $100 or donate ANY amount online. There are suggestions in the picture above of what your donation could buy for this great project. If you can't make it tonight, you can make a donation of any amount, no amount is too small.
HOBOKEN’S SPRING ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL
Tomorrow (Sunday) from 1100am - 6pm on Washington Street between Observer Highway and 7th. Food, music, gifts, art, and activities galore… Headlining the Observer Highway Stage is Buster Poindexter at 430pm. If you like Latin Music and pop covers like me, then head to a personal favorite of mine, Maxima Alerta, who will be on the 7th Street stage at 3pm.
Given the event goes all day, be sure to squeeze in going to see The Addams Family at 2 somewhere in the middle!
