Summer Song ...
“One is always at home in one’s past ...”
~ Vladimir Nabokov
~ Russian-American novelist
~ from his 1951 memoir “Speak, Memory”
Visitors to the 29th Belvidere Victorian Days enjoy listening to a band in Garret D. Wall Park in front of United Presbyterian Church on a beautiful waning summer afternoon in Belvidere, New Jersey.
Victorian Days began in 1977 and has been held annually ever since on the weekend after Labor Day.
Victorian Days is a celebration of Belvidere’s Victorian heritage. Festivities include live entertainment; antique, craft and food vendors; antique/vintage car show; and Victorian era demonstrations.
Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers. Victorian Days is a perfect time to stroll through the town and step back into a bygone era.
