Fall may mean a little more to the folks in Martinsville—after all, when the leaves change color in the heavily-wooded area, the community takes on a new glow.
That may be why the Martinsville Community Center launched its annual Fall Festivals two years ago—or maybe not: maybe it's a chance to invite residents from throughout Bridgewater to take a drive up the hill and enjoy the restaurants, community groups and people of Martinsville.
The festival provide just that: a venue to connect the residents and businesses. Visitors will enjoy live music by the Quarry Lane Band, food from local businesses (and free homemade desserts), children’s games and activities, pumpkin painting and more. Local businesses/vendors will be displaying their products and services. In addition, there will be live performances and demonstrations throughout the day, including activities at the Washington Valley Library.
Also, the Martinsville Volunteer Fire Department, the Martinsville Volunteer Rescue Squad, the Bridgewater Township Police Department and the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office will be represented at the festival.
If you'd like to join in, the third annual fair is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Martinsville Community Center, 1961 Washington Valley Road. Parking is available at the Martinsville United Methodist Church, located next door. Admission is free.
Anyone interested in reserving a table at the festival should contact Jane Gandolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org or Carole Juth at email@example.com Registration forms are also available at the Washington Valley Library.
