A quick clarification on Octoberfest. The event kicks off at 6PM with the food. Anyone attending the party is asked to bring a covered dish and a 6 pack of your favorite microbrew to share. At 8pm the tables are pushed to the side and the dance floor opens.
The water turn off date is November 30th, the week after Thanksgiving. This date is chosen to allow those who spend their winters far from NJ to attend Thanksgiving with their local families. Please be advised though that this may be changed to sooner should the forecast call for below freezing temperatures for an extended period.
