On a picture-perfect Autumn day, Downtown Toms River presented the 2015 Harvest Arts Festval along Washington Street. An estimated 6,000 people attended the event!

Attendees got to experience a potpourri of all types of artists, including: Potters, Glassworks, Photographers, Oils (painters), Watercolors (painters), and Juried Crafters (knitting, hand-made clothing, quilts, etc.).

In addition, there was a variety of entertainment from bands and dance acts encompassing various traditions, styles and genres; rides for children; pumpkin decorating; street performers; a fall dessert contest; and a beer garden, sponsored by Fire Co. #1.
