Washington Township will host its annual Super Saturday Celebration on Saturday May 7th beginning at 10:00 AM at the Washington Lake Park Amphitheater.
The annual event is a traditional crowd pleaser in Washington Township.
What makes Super Saturday so ‘super’ is that the theme, ‘No One Fights Alone’ truly embodies the spirit of our great community!
This year we will focus on an epidemic that is affecting the residents of our town, state and country. “Opiates and its effect on our residents.” We will have several topic speakers to educate the community. Kennedy Health’s Woman’s and Children’s Assoc., Inspira Behavioral Health, and New Jersey Hospital Association Veterans, and our own Washington Township Police Department to demonstrate the delivery of Nasal Narcan, the life saving drug.
Please stop by the topic Tent! Below is the schedule for the presentations:

Super Saturday is like an old-fashioned town fair complete with amusement rides, family entertainment, great food and colorful, attractive vendor displays to browse and shop. Of course the best part is bumping into all your old friends and neighbors. It’s like a homecoming right there in the park.
Super Saturday promises a little something for everyone- from arts and crafts and marching bands to great Mother's Day gifts and live music by our very own hometown SASS FACTION Band. Children’s activities include: face painting, balloons, inflatable and mechanical rides. Scheduled performances by the Washington Township Minutemen Marching Band at noon, the Washington Township middle school and 5th grade bands will entertain park guests in the morning hours. SASS FACTION will start their FREE live concert at 12:15 so bring your blankets and chairs and grab lunch from one of our fantastic food vendors and enjoy the show!
