First Ward Councilman Anthony Davis presents the first place trophy to Earnest Cuffie, a Paterson resident who beat out the other competitors for the title of “Top Dog!”
The Businesses and Merchants of Downtown Paterson recently sponsored the 1st Annual Amateur Hot dog Eating contest, as the City of Paterson launched Paterson PM. Paterson PM is Mayor Jeffery Jones’ initiative to create a lively nightlife in Downtown Paterson, in-turn spurring economic growth in the City.
The launch event, a three day Memorial Day Festival took place on Market Street from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM over the holiday weekend. While most Paterson residents traveled to NJ beaches and lakes, many residents took the chance to enjoy a staycation in the Silk City.
In addition to the live music, kids zone, art exhibits, and food vendors, businesses on Main, Market, and Broadway placed selected sale and clearance items on their store sidewalks. Shoppers enjoyed discounted parking at the Van Houten Street parking garage, just a 30 second walk to Main Street.
Many other spring & summer events are planned for Downtown Paterson, which include the following.
Saturday, June 11th – Paterson Art Walk – a lively and well presented art exhibit throughout the Downtown and Historic Districts of Paterson. For more information: www.patersonartscouncil.org
Tuesday, June 28th – GREEN FAIR sponsored by the Passaic County Planning Department and The City of Paterson’s Green Team. The businesses and merchants of Downtown Paterson will participate with an exhibit booth at this event with a special “green” giveaway to the first 200 people to register for our Downtown events mailing list. Remember, shopping local is shopping green.
Friday, July 1st – Celebrate our Independence Day at the Downtown Paterson Fireworks Extravaganza. The display will be launched from the top of Garret Mountain overlooking Main Street.
