TODAY’S HOLIDAY: SHAD FESTIVAL

Shad Festival

Since 1981, the city of Lambertville, New Jersey, has celebrated the Shad Festival, honoring the annual return of the shad fish to the Delaware River to spawn. The festival also promotes the preservation of the environment and of the Delaware River ecosystem. The two-day street festival features an arts show, cooking demonstrations, and live music concerts. Local nonprofit and community volunteer organizations use the event as a fundraiser by selling food and other items. There are also demonstrations of how the local fishing community catches shad with nets.More… Discuss
