UPDATE from the Hackettstown BID: Due to the unfavorable weekend weather forecast, the Hackettstown BID has made the difficult decision to cancel our International Day activities originally planned for this Saturday in Hackettstown. Cancelled activities include the outdoor musical performances and craft vendors stationed along a closed Main Street.
This would have been the HBID’s first International Day. This event has tremendous potential and we wanted to ensure that it kicks off with the strong start it deserves! While the weather isn’t cooperating this year, we look forward to bringing International Day to Hackettstown next year.
Please note that although International Day won’t be happening, our restaurants and shops will all be open for business as usual. The Tricky Tray will also be held as planned in the Community Center, with doors opening at 3pm and calling beginning at 5:30 p.m.
