It was a beautiful night in Rahway Arts District. The clear skies and balmy weather were a pleasant surprise in early October. Over 2000 attendees took to the streets of downtown Rahway seeking arts and culture, great food, and the live entertainment found all over town. Check out our gallery of images and Storify story recapping this awesome event!
The Culture Crawl 2013 Map is now available for download! Thirty-one locations (with a few surprises in between) and over 40 different events and activities are scheduled for the night. Plan your route ahead but save some time for diversions and unexpected entertainment as well! There are also lots of delicious choices for dinner or a quick snack. Make sure to stroll over to Cherry Street to see what local restaurants have to offer.
