6 min read

The back-to-school commercials may have already begun, but summer isn’t over yet. Inside or outside, North Jersey has many options to keep you from hitting a summer slump this weekend. 

Dance to live music and enjoy a variety of food at a jazz festival. Take the family on a hike led by a guide from the New Jersey Botanical Gardens. Share your favorite book with a group of book lovers over coffee. Find your inner Zen and your inner balance with paddleboard yoga and meditation.

There are only a few weekends left in summer so be sure to make every minute count. Here are some things to do for the weekend of Aug.13-15.

Thank our troops at a summer festival

Show appreciation for veterans while listening to live music and enjoying tasty food, at the annual Vets Summer Fest in Hackettstown. All proceeds go to Operation Chillout, a volunteer organization working to support homeless veterans in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island by providing emergency supplies and survival gear.

The benefit kicks off with a motorcycle poker run. Bikers can register with a $20 donation fee the morning of the event from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Hackettstown Elks Lodge. Participants will follow a scenic route through Warren County, drawing a playing card at each designated stop. Prizes will be awarded to the best and worst poker hands at the end of the run at Vasa Park.
