Locals recommend exploring Snyder Field Park, Columbia Park, Passaic River Park, and many enjoy the summer concert series offered at Memorial Park. People also look forward to the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which includes a family night fireworks show and a parade. Another wonderful family-oriented event includes the annual Rubber Ducky Festival which takes place each June at Passaic River Park. Each June also brings the annual Berkeley Heights Street Fair, and 2015 marked the beginning of the first annual Berkeley Heights Winter Walk, which features a tree lighting, firework show, shopping, entertainment, and more!
