The Open Space Pace and Festival takes place in Freehold, NJ on September 20, 2014.
If you are asking yourself, “What is the Open Space Pace and Festival?” this is a special, free all-day occasion that includes a parade of horses and many other fun and family-friendly events. The daylong festival is sponsored by a non-profit organization, The Open Space Pace that raises “awareness about the relationship between horse farms, horse racing, and the preservation of Open Space through its annual parade and festival.”
The event starts at 10:00 a.m. with a horse parade that starts out at the Hall of Records in Freehold Borough and proceeds into the Freehold Raceway. After arriving at the track, the opening ceremony will usher in the day’s remaining events! How do a petting zoo, education exhibitions, more horse races, and even a concert and fireworks sound?
This article describes in more detail the parade’s roots honoring Dr. Karyn Malinowski, Director of the Rutgers Equine Science Center, “as the Grand Marshall and leader of the parade.” The Open Space Pace is a philanthropic event that has donated over $28,000 to other nonprofit organizations through this festival and daylong event.
If it sounds like fun for the whole family, make sure to head out on September 20. For more information, or to become a sponsor for this event, please contact Brett Taft at 732.577.4059.
