Late Night Thursday is coming back to Hackettstown

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Hackettstown Business Improvement District announced that they will be bringing back Late Night Thursdays this summer.

Businesses are encouraged to stay open till 8:00 p.m. so that visitors can stroll through town, have a bite to eat, and do some shopping. Late Night Thursdays will be every Thursday night starting July 8 through August 26.

To add to the festivities this year, every Thursday there will be a live band from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the old Hometown Hardware, located at 232 Main Street, and the band line up will be announced soon. The BID has been approved by the town to offer BYOB during the live music segment (6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) in the parking lot only, according to Hackettstown Business Improvement District Executive Director Laurie Rapisardi said.

Some restaurants will be offering deliveries to the location as well as some special “food items” that can be picked up ahead of time for the concert, Rapisardi said.

There will be a small farmers market in the same parking lot on those 8 Thursday evenings, Rapisardi said.

“We are really looking forward to lots of activity and visitors to Hackettstown for great outdoor fun, shopping local, and supporting our Hackettstown BID businesses,” Rapisardi said.
