Ridgewood NJ, yesterday was small business Saturday and once again the Village seemed under enthusiastic for the Shopping day that focus directly on the types of business that the central business district pretends it represents .The Ridgewood chamber did virtually nothing .

The Ridgewood Guild’s Winterfestook took place at 12:00 at Memorial Park , with great performances by Orpheus Men’s Chorus and Ars Musica. There were Ice sculptures, horse drawn hay rides, trackless train rides, arcade games, complimentary hot chocolate, marshmallows and more under the Raymond’s tent and lots of elves!

There was a nice crowd some holiday shopping from Mango Jam, Love Handles, Rock Road Jewelry, Dparz Shoes, Gigi’s Boutique, and Hot Jewelry Box. At lest some small businesses participated. The Guild did a great job.

So the question often comes about , when your asking taxpayers to lay down some money for a parking garage , is don’t you think a bit more enthusiasm exhibited for “small business Saturday ” might be in order?

  1. Maybe we need to build a mega-ginormous garage… that should fit it!
