“Councilman Steven Schertz, Lt. David Scrivanic and the entire planning committee have outdone themselves this year,” Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera said. “Many residents including members of the fire districts and emergency services have graciously volunteered their time for this event.”
“Our volunteers and generous sponsors are what make this a truly great event for the Tinton Falls community," Mayor Skudera added.
