May 9 would have been the seventh annual Lake Hopatcong Block Party, a day that brings visitors together with businesses, non-profit organizations, community groups, crafters, and food vendors to kick off the summer season and celebrate all facets of Lake Hopatcong life.

However, all is not lost. The Lake Hopatcong Foundation secured a new date for a fall Lake Hopatcong Block Party to be held on Saturday, October 10. This new date falls on the same weekend as our annual Lake Loop, scheduled for Sunday, October 11, creating an exciting weekend with multiple ways to bring the community together to enjoy and support New Jersey’s largest lake.

The foundation will continue to monitor CDC and state restrictions and recommendations as we proceed with planning for both events.
