Golden Nugget’s Art on the Boardwalk
Jul 29 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Golden Nugget is a 50-year-old Lambertville institution that is open year round. Since 1967, the Golden Nugget has been a “gold mine” for finding antiques, collectibles, art and more.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.

Besides looking for the perfect gift for family or friends, one of the main reasons people shop here is to find decorative items for their homes. Lately, the crowd of buyers includes the faces of a younger and diverse group of people. Young adults are frequenting the Golden Nugget looking to blend store-bought items with a bit of their own nostalgia to create an eclectic mix of styles that reflect who they are now, as well as where they came from. It’s not unusual to find your next family heirloom here.

Aside from our unique merchandise mix, our market is enhanced by the friendly dealers who come weekly (some for over 30 years!) to sell a variety of wares.  Stroll around and take the time to browse through the incredible variety of merchandise and strike up a conversation with the dealers. Enjoy yourself!

Canoeing Hunterdon’s Waterway with Hunterdon Parks
Aug 5 @ 8:15 pm – 8:30 pm

Join the Parks on the river where we have been canoeing for 40 years.  It is fun, educational, and great exercise!  Spend a day with nature.  Just bring water, lunch, and a smile—we will do the rest.  We supply the canoes, kayaks, gear, training, and transportation.  Our experienced leaders teach the ways of currents and eddies and how to paddle mankind’s oldest craft, with a few new tricks.  Tell us what you want to learn—we are eager to teach.  Unless stated otherwise, all trips are suitable for ages 8 through adults.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

CLINTON POND PADDLES

Saturday, April 8, Clinton Town parking lot off of Halstead Street & Water Street, ages 6 through adults, $25

Session A: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Session B: 12:00PM to 2:00 PM

Paddle around the scenic “Clinton Pond”… past the lily pads, under the road bridge, past the historic Red Mill, up to the spillway of the Spruce Run Reservoir, and back.  Great for children ages six and up (with an adult), senior citizens, beginners, folks with special needs (please inform us in advance), or those with a hankering to take a leisurely paddle and commune with nature.

 

FLAT WATER PADDLE:  SUNSET PADDLE ON ROUND VALLEY RESERVOIR

Session A: Friday, June 16

Session B: Friday, July 14

Friday, July 17, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Round Valley

Reservoir Boat Launch, ages 8 through adult, $25

Treat yourself to a leisurely evening sunset paddle.  The group will meet at Round Valley Reservoir Boat Launch (white van with green canoes).  Bring a flashlight and a jacket: it can get much cooler by the water after sunset.

 

PLANNING YOUR CANOE TRIP

Pre-register by the Wednesday before the trip.  Please note: Due to water levels or other circumstances beyond our control, leaders may choose an alternative river.  If we cancel the trip for any reason, we will call you as soon as we make the cancellation, but our trips run rain or shine!  Dress in layers so you can adjust to changing

temperatures.  Durable old clothes are best, especially wool and polypropylene fleece in cool weather.  Sneakers are recommended; no sandals, boots, or heavy shoes.  Bring lunch (packed in waterproof container), lots of water, sunscreen, a rain jacket, a hat, eyeglass strap, etc.  A complete change of clothing can be packed in a waterproof bag to be carried in your canoe or to be in the van for the trip’s end.  No alcoholic beverages.  No pets are allowed, except for guide animals.  We have several kayaks available, but can also accommodate your own kayak on many trips (at your own risk).

RIVER TRIPS

8:15 AM to about 3:30 PM, Arboretum, ages 8 through adults, $35

Your leaders will fit you with a lifejacket and paddle and then drive to the river, where they will discuss

maneuvering techniques and canoe safety.  Our leaders will guide you down the river.  We paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle for about two more hours.  We are flexible with our time, which depends in part on natural forces, such as wind speed and the river’s water level.  Our aim is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour.

Race Day at the Fair – Flemington Speedway Historical Society Reunion
Aug 27 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Flemington Speedway Historical Society will present an overflowing tent of vintage race cars at the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair, which will be held August 23rd through the 27th.

The society’s mission is to preserve, protect, and document the history of the Flemington Fairgrounds and Speedway. The 4-H Fair was created after the owners of the Flemington Fair decided in 1999 to cease having it, and the property is now a shopping complex.

Besides its big display, which will be open daily, the society will again host Race Day at the Fair, the annual Flemington Speedway reunion, on Aug. 27th, the fair’s final day.  An old fashioned autograph session will be held at the tent from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.

Any former driver or car owner from any division or year which raced at the former Flemington Fair Speedway is welcome to participate.  Please send an email of intent or for additional information to: [email protected]

We hope to see you there!

Canoeing Hunterdon’s Waterway with Hunterdon Parks
Sep 16 @ 8:15 pm – 8:30 pm

Join the Parks on the river where we have been canoeing for 40 years.  It is fun, educational, and great exercise!  Spend a day with nature.  Just bring water, lunch, and a smile—we will do the rest.  We supply the canoes, kayaks, gear, training, and transportation.  Our experienced leaders teach the ways of currents and eddies and how to paddle mankind’s oldest craft, with a few new tricks.  Tell us what you want to learn—we are eager to teach.  Unless stated otherwise, all trips are suitable for ages 8 through adults.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

CLINTON POND PADDLES

Saturday, April 8, Clinton Town parking lot off of Halstead Street & Water Street, ages 6 through adults, $25

Session A: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Session B: 12:00PM to 2:00 PM

Paddle around the scenic “Clinton Pond”… past the lily pads, under the road bridge, past the historic Red Mill, up to the spillway of the Spruce Run Reservoir, and back.  Great for children ages six and up (with an adult), senior citizens, beginners, folks with special needs (please inform us in advance), or those with a hankering to take a leisurely paddle and commune with nature.

 

FLAT WATER PADDLE:  SUNSET PADDLE ON ROUND VALLEY RESERVOIR

Session A: Friday, June 16

Session B: Friday, July 14

Reservoir Boat Launch, ages 8 through adult, $25

Treat yourself to a leisurely evening sunset paddle.  The group will meet at Round Valley Reservoir Boat Launch (white van with green canoes).  Bring a flashlight and a jacket: it can get much cooler by the water after sunset.

 

PLANNING YOUR CANOE TRIP

Pre-register by the Wednesday before the trip.  Please note: Due to water levels or other circumstances beyond our control, leaders may choose an alternative river.  If we cancel the trip for any reason, we will call you as soon as we make the cancellation, but our trips run rain or shine!  Dress in layers so you can adjust to changing

temperatures.  Durable old clothes are best, especially wool and polypropylene fleece in cool weather.  Sneakers are recommended; no sandals, boots, or heavy shoes.  Bring lunch (packed in waterproof container), lots of water, sunscreen, a rain jacket, a hat, eyeglass strap, etc.  A complete change of clothing can be packed in a waterproof bag to be carried in your canoe or to be in the van for the trip’s end.  No alcoholic beverages.  No pets are allowed, except for guide animals.  We have several kayaks available, but can also accommodate your own kayak on many trips (at your own risk).

RIVER TRIPS

8:15 AM to about 3:30 PM, Arboretum, ages 8 through adults, $35

Your leaders will fit you with a lifejacket and paddle and then drive to the river, where they will discuss

maneuvering techniques and canoe safety.  Our leaders will guide you down the river.  We paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle for about two more hours.  We are flexible with our time, which depends in part on natural forces, such as wind speed and the river’s water level.  Our aim is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour.

Golden Nugget’s Art on the Boardwalk
Sep 23 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Golden Nugget is a 50-year-old Lambertville institution that is open year round. Since 1967, the Golden Nugget has been a “gold mine” for finding antiques, collectibles, art and more.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.

Besides looking for the perfect gift for family or friends, one of the main reasons people shop here is to find decorative items for their homes. Lately, the crowd of buyers includes the faces of a younger and diverse group of people. Young adults are frequenting the Golden Nugget looking to blend store-bought items with a bit of their own nostalgia to create an eclectic mix of styles that reflect who they are now, as well as where they came from. It’s not unusual to find your next family heirloom here.

Aside from our unique merchandise mix, our market is enhanced by the friendly dealers who come weekly (some for over 30 years!) to sell a variety of wares.  Stroll around and take the time to browse through the incredible variety of merchandise and strike up a conversation with the dealers.

Golden Nugget’s Art on the Boardwalk
Nov 18 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Golden Nugget is a 50-year-old Lambertville institution that is open year round. Since 1967, the Golden Nugget has been a “gold mine” for finding antiques, collectibles, art and more.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.

Besides looking for the perfect gift for family or friends, one of the main reasons people shop here is to find decorative items for their homes. Lately, the crowd of buyers includes the faces of a younger and diverse group of people. Young adults are frequenting the Golden Nugget looking to blend store-bought items with a bit of their own nostalgia to create an eclectic mix of styles that reflect who they are now, as well as where they came from.
