At the Celebrate Summer Uptown kickoff event held June 21, members of the Upper Montclair Business Association were in the neighborhood handing out Celebrate Summer Uptown water bottles and, “inviting visitors to CELEBRATE!”
“There was a fun chatter about town that was both refreshing and encouraging as we head into the dog days of summer.”
The theme for the first Social Snapshot Saturday Photo Opp held June 28 was, "Show Some Love for the Red, White & Blue.” In preparation for Independence Day, participants were asked to take selfies Uptown with anything red, white or blue and use the hashtag #celebratesummeruptown.
Chelsea Fowler was the first Social Snapshot Saturday winner, the Montclair resident won a $25 gift card to Java Love Coffee Roasters at 244 Bellevue Avenue.
For the second Social Snapshot Saturday Photo Opp held July 4, the theme was “ It's Time to Fire Up the Barbie.” Participants were asked to, “snap a pic of anything Uptown that will make your barbecue great!”
Montclair resident Jaime Molinaro snapped a picture of her daughter Lily in Olive That and More with a caption saying, "Lily says a BBQ without lemon or basil oils from Olive That and More is just a bust!”
As the Week 2 winner, Lily picked out a $25 gift card to her favorite Uptown business, Little Shoebox.
