he sun drops lower in the sky, and Mayor McCormac welcomes the crowd to the “best town around.” “The Music Man of Woodbridge” introduces a band, or a solo, or a duo, that you may have never heard of. Music fills the air and another night of amazing music washes over Parker Press Park. Dancers strut around the perimeter while others listen intently. This is Woodbridge Wednesdays.

An opportunity to buy Jersey Fresh, patronize local vendors and enjoy high caliber music, all with no admission or parking fees.
