HOBOKEN AND BEYOND – Hoboken has just released a schedule of free events for this summer. It includes Summer Concerts at Sinatra Park, Family Fun Nights at Shipyard Park, and Movies Under the Stars at Pier A Park.
“All events are free to the public and are paid for by sponsorships and grants, not tax dollars,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “They’re a wonderful way to enjoy our waterfront with friends and family this summer.”
“We’re excited to continue this yearly tradition,” said Supervisor of Cultural Affairs Geri Fallo. “The opening night concert and the Grease re-release are particularly noteworthy events.”
Paramount Pictures is re-releasing Grease as a sing-along, and Hoboken has been chosen as one of the cities to premiere this new version of the popular movie.
“We invite everyone to dress up as their favorite characters from the movie and come by and strut their stuff,” added Fallo.
The opening night concert on June 3rd at Sinatra Park is a tribute to Pete Seeger. It will feature over 200 children from many of Hoboken's Schools, as well as and some of Hoboken's favorite musicians.
During the months of June, July and August, Summer Concerts will take place most Thursday nights from 7pm to 9pm, Family Fun Nights are scheduled from 7pm to 8pm every Tuesday. Movies Under the Stars are scheduled for 9pm most Wednesday's in June and July and around 8:15pm in August, unless noted in the schedule below.
