Things to Do in Bergen County Week of August 24

Weekly Events  / 
We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!


Sponsored Post: Because one-size fits all learning isn’t right for every student, you’re going to want to check out Fusion Englewood, a new 6th – 12th private school where classes are self-paced, homework stays at school, and positive relationships are reinforced so all students succeed. Because Fusion Academy does not have a traditional semester start or end time, students can enroll any time of year. Get ready to experience a totally new concept in education! (Fusion Academy Englewood, 10 Sterling Blvd, Suite 201, Englewood, 201-431-9554)
