Happy 4th of July weekend to all! We’ll be partying with you all over Baristaville! This year’s theme tchotchke is the Baristanet Button. Be sure and get yours at these locations:
Sunday, July 4:
Jolie Solomon will be at Maplewood’s festivities handing out our highly collectible buttons. We’ll be at the Bloomfield fireworks on Sunday night with more buttons! Did you know? Baristanet is an official sponsor of Bloomfield’s “Summer of Fun.”
Monday, July 5:
We’ll be in Montclair’s morning parade – give us the royal wave and cheer as we “float” by. Three great local businesses contributed to this year’s Baristanet float. Gaia Gardens is bringing the truck. Competitive Signs made the banners. Rock, Paper, Scissors is adding all the other creative flourishes. Huge thanks to them for their support.
Come find our table at the post-parade afternoon picnic at Edgemont Park. Barista Kids will have free face painting at their table (all ages, by the way!), and we’ll have…more buttons.
But what’s summer without a splash and some sunscreen? Old faithful parade viewers know they can count on some water gun action from the Commonwealth Club “floaters-by”, and our friends at The Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation will have a float again in the parade. They’lll be handing out samples of sunscreen and carrying signs reminding everyone to be Play Sun Smart.
The Boy Scouts of America, celebrating their 100th Anniversary, are officially The Grand Marshalls of the parade.
