From St. Bartholomew’s: Perhaps the best-kept secret in New Jersey is the traditional Annual Labor Day Italian Feast in Scotch Plains. Hosted by the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Chapter of UNICO, St. Bartholomew’s Church, and St. Bartholomew’s Academy, the festival has been an annual tradition honoring San Nicola di Bari, the patron saint of the town of Montazzoli, Italy, since 1974. The feast is truly a great family event and has something for everyone to enjoy. There is nightly live music, rides, games, and great food, including favorites like pizza, pasta, zeppoles, clams, mussels, and calzones. In addition, there are nightly 50/50 drawings and a super 50/50 raffle on Monday. More information
