Remember that feeling when the Scholastic Book fair came to your school? The hardest questions were presented to you: fiction or non-fiction? Fun reading or summer reading? Cool pencil or awesome eraser? Even though school’s out for summer (thank you Alice Cooper) thanks to Word, the kids (and adults) don’t have to wait for the new academic year to begin! We have: WORD Presents the Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip on Thursday, July 12 at 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the Historic Downtown Jersey City Farmers’ Market!
Here’s a little snippet from Word:“This July, Scholastic is partnering with bookstores and libraries in communities nationwide, hosting reading festivals for families with kids ages 0-12. Bring your reader to this fun (and FREE!) family event to meet authors, take photos with beloved costume characters, win prizes, and more. We’re excited to bring Scholastic to the Historic Downtown Farmers Market in front of the Grove St Path stop to help bring even more fun to your summer afternoon!”
On July 9th, 4:00 – 7:00 pm, the East District Police Department is having a Block Party! Who doesn’t love a good ol’ block party? There will be music, bounce house, food, water/juices, and great giveaways! The party will be held on Pine St. between Johnston and Maple. Come out and celebrate with the community!
Torico’s 50th Anniversary
Another HDSID business is celebrating their 50th Anniversary and they are having a celebration for all! First we had Helen’s Pizzeria and now, the honor goes to Torico’s Ice Cream Parlor! Torico’s was and is The Jersey City place all kids and adults want to visit for their handmade ice cream. There’s nothing better than sitting outside either in the park or on your stoop or just walking around down town with an ice cream from Torico’s… Much like Helen’s Pizzeria, they’ve helped nourish a lot of Jersey City residents and visitors alike. Sunday July 8th at 12:00 – 4:00 mark your calendars everyone!
Sunday, July 8 at 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Torico Ice Cream Parlor

The JCPD and the JCFD are holding a contest for young adults from June 13th to August 1st 2018.
As per the JCPD and the JCFD “The premise of the contest is to create positive interactions with Police and Fire personnel. In addition to the interactions, children have an opportunity to collect JCPD and/or JCFD paper badges at events (these events will be announced throughout the contest). Each participating juvenile will than need to bring his/her badges to National Night Out (locations to be announced), scheduled for Tuesday, August 7, 2018, where a winner(s) will be announced.” This is a great opportunity to forge positive relationships between the youth and our city’s first responders!
