Behind the Scenes: Covering Great Falls Fest, Paterson, New Jersey

Published July 15, 2012 by Maryanne

Me, at Great Falls, Paterson New Jersey

Best part of my job, interviewing children! Aren’t they adorable?!

Mayor of Paterson, Jeff Jones

Writing is a wonderful career because business is FUN!

I had so much fun covering the Great Falls Jazz Festival last night. The article will be published in the Paterson Press online in the very near future.

I love getting in with the community and being part of it. I love chatting with people and seeing them out and about, truly enjoying themselves.

Two fantastic bands played, About Funk and One Accord. And during intermission, a bunch of Michael Jackson tunes were played, including old Jackson 5 hits and many people were dancing — including the mayor!

Paterson is the town I was born in, so it will always be dear to my heart. It’s wonderful to be a part of awesome festivities where the focus is on family and enjoyment — not crime!

The festival was still in full swing well after dusk when my husband and I decided to have a bite at Libby’s, a diner that’s been around since 1936! They serve all kinds of burgers for meat eaters, and for vegetarians they have amazing grape leaves! They also serve beer and wine. We had the best waitress too! Libby’s — another hidden jewel in New Jersey.

The Great Falls Jazz Fest will continue until August 4, so if you like music — free music! — come out and enjoy!
