Things to Do in Bergen County Week of September 21

Weekly Events  / 

We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!
 
Sponsored Post: Imagine every aspect of your house exactly as you want it. Giant master bath with luxe soaking tub? Entire new gourmet kitchen with every bell and whistle you can imagine? It may sound far-fetched but the truth is you can get the home of your dreams (or just the room of your dreams, for now) with the help of Hobbs, Incorporated, a third-generation family-owned business ready to tackle any project you have – whether it’s a tiny upgrade or an entire new build. Each client gets a dedicated project manager, site supervisor, and individual website, which means headache-free home renovation, which, as you probably know, is the best kind.
