Oakland NJ has several committees which host events for the public. Some of these events include:
The annual carnival, a seasonal farmers market, car shows sponsored by the high school, a Halloween Parade, Art in the Park, Easter Egg Hunt, and others that are apparently in the works. I was the Chairperson for the town's Public Event's Committee last year, which sponsors many of these events. Here's a FB link for the committee.
The current initiatives are to hopefully create a passive recreation area to include a dog park and a skate park. The town has to approve the plans.
If you are thinking of moving here, I would be happy to help.
