The Water Lantern Festival in Jersey City

The Water Lantern Festival, presented by One World, is coming to Jersey City! This event is an incredible experience where you, your friends, and family will create a magical memory of life. It’s a time where strangers can come together, show love one another, and heal themselves.

This festival is the only one in the United States that combines the magic of friends, family, and great food with a beautiful array of twinkling lanterns on the waterfront. The purpose of this experience is to bring together individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life to:

Experience Happiness
Discover Love
Bring Healing to The Soul
Enjoy Peace and Unity
Increase Hope and Faith Connect with others

There is something to do for everyone at this beautiful event. You can enjoy various local food trucks, relax while listening to music, check out the local vendors, decorate lanterns, or even play a game of corn hole with your pals.

As the sun begins to set in the evening sky, the Water Lantern Festival begins to shine as the lanterns are launched onto the water. Watch your unique lantern drift on the water as it joins other lanterns. This is when you can reflect on your life, share your dreams, and feel the peace of all those around you as you enjoy the reflection of the lanterns on the water.

The Water Lantern Festival is a for-profit event. One World partners with local charities and non-profit organizations surrounding Jersey City. This year they partnered up with the Liberty Humane Society, who will receive a portion of the proceeds made.

The event in Jersey City will be on Friday, July 20th, and Saturday, July 21st.
-Gates open at 4 p.m.

National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day

Happy National Puppy Day! On National Puppy Day there are many things that you can do – you can treat your own dog but more importantly you can adopt a puppy from a local New Jersey shelter. Here are some New Jersey shelters where you can adopt a puppy locally.

Bloomfield Animal Shelter in Bloomfield

Obie is available for adoption! ? He was found as a stray last year and has been working on his manners to become a gentleman. He is a volunteer favorite for his goofy ways! He is approx 2-3 years old, altered, and UTD on vaccinations. He has beautiful eyes and a white coat with brown spots. Obie walks well on a leash and loves to play. He is very friendly with those he knows and trusts, and also gets along will with other dogs and doesn't seem to mind cats. He is a sweet boy who just needs the right home where he can get the love and attention he needs. Obie is wary of strangers at first, so anyone who is interested in adopting him will need to come for several visits to get to know each other first. He doesn't realize his size and thinks he's a lap dog, which is why he needs someone experienced to help teach boundaries, and why we don't recommend he be adopted by someone with young children. If you are a new dog owner and want to adopt Obie, you should be willing to commit to working with him with a professional trainer. Obie loves treats, which will make training easier – and fun for him! He will do best in a household that does not have frequent visitors since he needs slow introduction to new people.#adoptdontshop #newjersey #bloomfieldnj #dogs #dogsofinstgram #terrier

Hi! My name is Apollo. I am about a year old and believed to be a Cane Corso mix. Someone left me tied to a fence and the wonderful people from The Secaucus Animal Shelter came and saved me?. I look intimidating, but I am a huge love bug❤️. My first home did not properly train me, but the Secaucus Animal Shelter saw all of my potentional and sent me to a trainer for the past 4 weeks. Now I am a completley different dog and they are so proud of me ??! My ideal home would be one with children 10 years old and above(if any children at all) and recommended to be the only dog. I am very dog friendly, I just require a lot of time and attention. A home with a yard is the home for me, big dogs need room to roam! Whoever wants to love me furever should also be an experienced dog owner – someone who will stay consistent with my training. Training me is a breeze because I am very food modivated, but NOT food aggressive. I know all of my commands(sit, down, wait, come, stay, etc). I also walk very nicely on a leash and I am potty&crate trained. I love any and all toys! *Perks to love this boy included in adoption* Any questions or interest please contact The Secaucus Animal Shelter (201) 348-3213 . I am staying at my trainers house and I am available through the shelter by appointment only.
