There will be more amusements than last year, including pig races, and 50 food trucks from around the region.

  2. Biggest chutzpah is the revenue from thie event for the rent will go to the Blueclaws no to the Township. Once again residents and taxpayers are shafted by the politicians who approved this mess. The LIC members who voted for the 40 year lease when all the Blueclaws pay is 175K a year and they can rent it out for events. T

    1. Is that true? What is your source for that? Typically with stadium leases the owner of the stadium gets the revenue for any other events.

    2. Look at the lease details between the LIC and Blueclaws. The township must give 10 days notice for off season events meaning only if the township wants use of the stadium premises.

    This is definitely a good thing for the economy .
    There will be ample opportunity for local vendors to cash in and bring in tax revenue.
    50,000 will be spending a lot of money let me see how I can get a piece of that pie .
    Thank you

  9. No need to panic the event will start on Friday erev shabbos most probably late afternoon long after school is over. The next two days is shabbos and Sunday is Erev Rosh Hashana no school. The local residents will be inconvenienced as will seasons and other nearby shopping centers.

    Dear readers of Hefkervelt. The town is in a tailspin. The time has come to start a recall of all out officials. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. 50 thousand people added to our town at a time when residents are preparing for Rosh Hashanah. We get 0 benefit. We will start by recalling Menashe Miller. If we need to being up all of his serious wrongdoings in the process, so be it. Once Menashe is removed we will work on the others until we have a Committee that puts the needs of our town over the desire to line their pockets. Time to get this going. Stay tuned for developments.

    2. 50 thousand people added to our town at a time when residents are preparing for Rosh Hashanah. We get 0 benefit.

      "our town" ..."We get"etc.

      What ownership rights do "we" have to Lakewood?Who gave them to us?What justification do "we" have for impeding a legal use of a stadium?

      Even if we don't like it. The stadium was there before most of the residents who will affected by the traffic.
