Free Music, good food, and a fun atmosphere. It is a beautiful area. And If anyone is interested, we can do a bike ride down the D&R Canal path.

Bikers: We will meet up by the parking lot right before you cross over Washingtons Crossings Bridge once you turn off of, or cross over Rt. 29. This is a 7 mile one way or 14 mile both way, bike ride and will have to chain up our bikes as soon as we make it to lambertville.  

 

The meet up location is repersented by spot B on this picture:

Walkers: Meet Up at Golden Nugget Antique Market off of Rt. 29 "River Road".

Hopefully both groups can meet up around 1:15PM-1:30PM at the Festival.  I will need a member of the walking group to contact me on my cell. Thank you!

    Lara, I'm sorry you had to wait. Walkers were simply not communicating with me, or any other member of the group. In the future, I will make sure if they are more than one group of people that they would require their own "meet up" for clarity. You did not mention you were walking, biking, or meeting up with us. The ones that did mention it, either cancelled, no-showed, came late,or never contacted me. I hope future experiences will be more forthcoming and clearer dialogue. Hope to see you soon!

    Got to support dan on this one. His number was posted on first post. He drove out mid week and posted pic of actual meeting place. Walkers were an afterthought from original bike plan. No walkers replied cause they all canceled. The bike crew waited over an hour for stragglers. What more can you ask for

    I posted about walking on friday but no one got back to me so I didn't think anyone was walking and didn't go. I was confused as well.

    I was on time to meet the walkers at the Golden Nugget Antique Center at 12:30 pm, but could not find anyone. Next time, please provide a phone number of the leader or have a flag or something to identify where the group is meeting.

    We got a late start, waiting on some people. The ride was pleasant, and then the festival was okay. Lunch with the gang was fun, and I had my first fried oreo! The ride back was great.

    I would like to meet near washington state park on the jersey side just before we cross the washington crossing bridge. This is a great map in detail of the location: http://www.dandrcanal.com/pdf/parkmap.pdf . There is a parking lot underneith the bridge we can park are cars and either walk or bike to Lambertville. Bring bike chains and locks with you! I'm planning to go down there this Thursday to check out the sights and will fill you in on what I see. My cell # is[masked] - Dan

    So where are we meeting exactly? I live right outside of lambertville. There are buses to take people to the festival also since parking is limited.

    At this point who thinks they will be walking, who thinks they will be bicycling, and who is neither walking/cycling but showing up at the Shad Fest? Please add a Comment or put a note with your RSVP. Looks like a fun event and a good head count so far. Be a shame if people had trouble meeting up once they got there.
