In addition to the Movies in the Parks Series, the FOPCP hosts the annual Passaic County Fair, and is launching a Summer Concert Series in 2017. The FOPCP is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees who work in conjunction with Passaic County staff to run programming and cultural events in the park system, as well as secure grant funding and private donations to finance amenities and upgrades to the park grounds.
“We are proud to join with the Freeholders to offer free entertainment to residents in the Passaic County Park System this summer,” stated Friends of Passaic County Parks, Inc.
