OZmania Comes to High Bridge

Aug 07, 2014 08:32PM
A day dedicated to the classic movie The Wizard of Oz will take place on Saturday, August 9 in High Bridge. Activities include a photography contest, a coloring contest for kids, a parade and more. The evening culminates in a screening of The Wizard of Oz at 8:30pm at the Borough Commons. “The intention behind OZmania is simply to have fun, to focus on all the wonderful things High Bridge has to offer and to create a lot of joy for all,” explains Christina Whited, OZmania sponser and owner of Inside/Out shop in High Bridge.  “I hope people will come with their families early to eat, shop, and walk the Columbia Trail, then stay for the parade and the movie in our beautiful park.”

Be sure to participate in A Red Slipper Promenade: a chance to showcase your fandom in a Wizard of Oz themed costume parade. Participation is free, but if entrants wish to compete for prizes, there is a $5 registration fee. Registration can be made the day of the event at the Commons beginning at 5:30pm. Preregistration is handled by Inside/Out.

The photography competition participants are asked to submit a digital photo of a gnome in front of one of the many gnome homes on the Columbia Trail. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and join the fun. This event is free to all.

Location: Borough Commons park, High Bridge. For more information, visit
