Loyal readers know that Roxy grumbles about having to return from our beach house in Bay Head, New Jersey, a moment (nevermind a day) before we have to, but this year we’re actually looking forward to returning to the Roxiticus Valley for the last day of the Pastime Club Carnival and Labor Day Parade in Mendham Borough.  The Pastime Club of Mendham has sponsored a carnival within the Borough of Mendham to celebrate Labor Day for over sixty (60) years. It has become a wonderful part of our family tradition to connect with school friends before London and Maddie head back to school at Mendham Township Elementary School the next day.

The 2010 Pastime Club Carnival starts on Friday, September 3rd and continues through Labor Day Monday, September 6th. The carnival runs from 6pm to 10:30pm on Friday the 3rd and 6pm to 10:30pm on Saturday the 4th. On Sunday, September 5th, games and races — including sprints, wheelbarrow, three-legged and sack races for 10 years old and younger — will run from 2pm to 3pm, followed by the carnival from 6 to 10:30pm.

On Monday, September 6th, the Labor Day Parade Parade begins at 10:00am and the parade route runs along East Main Street and Mountain Avenue. Marchers should report to the Command Center at the intersection of East Main Street and Cold Hill Road by 9:30am.  The carnival follows the parade starting at 11:00am until 10:30pm.

This year, don’t miss Mendham’s own Rob Trout Band. Rob will be announcing the parade marchers at the Gazebo, then his band will kick off the Pastime Carnival with the best of classic rock and blues at the Gazebo immediately following the parade. 

We’ll see you out there!
