Community Day Returning to Knowlton – Saturday, October 1st.

After a two-year, COVID-induced hiatus, Knowlton’s Community Day will return to Tunnel Field Oct. 1.

And it’s free!

Organizers hope Community Day, which began in 2017, will be an opportunity for residents to reconnect after two years of pandemic isolation.

“We haven’t had many chances to get together,” said Deputy Mayor Debra Shipps.

Community Day has been Shipps’ baby, so to speak, since it started. She said many businesses and individuals have stepped up to support with donations of time, funding and all things town fair related.

Many township agencies will have displays, including the Fire Department and Rescue Squad. The Warren County Library will be there along with the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, which will offer ID cards for kids. Residents can bring expired medicines for proper disposal.

The New Jersey Forest Fire Service will be there. And at 1 p.m. the State Police Medivac helicopter will land right in the park.

“That’s always been one of the best parts of Community Day,” Shipps said.

There will also be bounce houses, inflatable slides and a train ride. A petting zoo and pony ride are planned, as well as a DJ, tattoos (temporary) and face painting.

Many local vendors will be on hand with food, popcorn and ice cream.

Community Day will run from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. Tunnel Field is located on Route 94 right at—where else—the tunnel.
