Victorian Days in Belvidere New Jersy

Despite earthquakes, hurricanes and severe flooding, Victorian Days went on.

The weekend after labor day the Ribbon Lady and the Ribbon Man look forward to the lovely Victorian Days Event in Belvidere, NJ. We fill our vintage suitcases with ribbon, the van with autumn wreaths, garlands and arrangements and away we go.

 Victorian Days in Belvidere, NJ
This year involved quite a bit or maneuvering to get to our space because the Peaquest Creek caused major problems for the residences of this quaint historical town in New Jersey.

The antique cars took up their spots with the owners proudly polishing and shining every speck of dust off of them. All the antique dealers and crafters were in the same spots they have occupied for many years around the beautiful square that is the center of Belevidere.
The master of ceromonies and the town crier proudly announced that the clocks were turned back to the year 1900. The costumed residence and visitors started to appear strolling about, the Star Spangled Banner was played, and Victorian Days 2011 opened.

There was much entertainment, with singing and dancing, the old calliope from Holland played, banjo bands, house tours, Victorian fashion shows, gentleman's auction, afternoon tea, an old time baseball game, and delicious homemade offerings from the churches that surround the square.

Next year will be the 25th anniversary of Belvidere Days.  I suspect it will be bigger and better than ever. Mary Ann and her devoted staff always seem to pull this huge undertaking together.

Oh yea, oh yea congratulations to Belvidere to be able to present the 24th annual Victorian Days in grand style despite,earthquakes, hurricanes, and severe flooding!
