Crossroads to Rock Union County

Step aside--- Garwood's Crossroads is making its way to the 12th Annual Union County Music Fest on September 12th and 13th at Clark's Oak Ridge Park. The borough's Northside favorite for live music will be featured at the two day festival-- putting up local talent on their very own stage (sponsored by the ultra un-cool Walmart).

Danielia Cotton will be the main act. Other bands appearing on the Crossroads Stage on Saturday and Sunday include: JoBonnano, School of Rock, Matt Koziol Band, Jay Touhey, Beale Street Love, and The Embracers.

The festival, headlined by the uber-90s band Third Eye Blind, will be home to four stages of FREE live music. They Might be Giants, Uncle Kracker, Gin Blossoms and Pete Yorn will also perform.

County officials have billed the event as a time for families from Garwood and other towns to gather and enjoy each other's company. Organizers say this year's Music Fest in Clark will be a much larger venue than in previous years. This year will also include rides and games for kids of all ages-- part of the Union County Fair, which sets up shop on September 10th. Residents can also play Laser Tag!

This year's event runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on both days. County Officials expect thousands of residents to attend.

The Union County Fair will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm on Thursday and Friday September 10th and 11th, and from 11 am to 10 pm on Saturday,

And while entry is FREE, there will be paid on-site parking for $10.
