Overlook at Canalside Park Ribbon Cutting

After months of tireless work by the Boonton Main Street Design Team, the Overlook at Canalside Park was finally opened with a ribbon cutting. The BMS Design Team has been busy sanding, painting, designing, and constructing multi-use seating and guide rails at the overlook. We want to thank The Canal Society of Morris County and Mickey Chopra of i2i Indian Italian Fusion and Vinnie's Pizzeria, as well as other private donors, for their generous contributions to this project. We also thank the Design Team for all of their hard work and encourage the community to visit while walking along Main Street! 

ITA Sports Ribbon Cutting
During our last First Friday July, we welcomed ITA Sports to Main Street with a ribbon cutting. ITA Sports is your go-to destination for  soccer, running, sports and lifestyle apparel, team wear, and equipment/footwear from top European and USA brands. We are so excited to have them on Main Street! Stop in today for your sporting apparel or to welcome them to Boonton!

2018 Holiday Wreath Design Project

Even though it's only July, it's never too early to start thinking about the holiday season! Boonton Main Street's design team is looking for donations for their annual wreath project. These wreaths are decorated and hung along Main Street to bring holiday cheer to Boonton's business district. 

Our goal is to transform 12 wreaths  for the 2018 holiday season, and each wreath costs about $80. Help us reach our goal of $1,000! Over time wreaths wear in quality, but through hand decoration, our design team can sustain them. While a few have already been made, we need funds to continue. The more we raise the more wreaths we can make!

Click here to donate! We thank you for supporting our initiatives to beautify Main Street!
