R-FH Area Weekend: Rumson Halloween Parade, Drug Take-Back

Well, it looks like even though the weather is going to vacillate from good to bad to good again, it may just cooperate with the weekend’s events in the Rumson-Fair Haven area.

On what the National Weather Service predicts to be a rain-drenched Saturday …

the Rumson Police Department will participate in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The aim of the day is “to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.”

People may discard unused or old prescription medication for safe disposal by police at the Rumson Police Department, 80 East River Road, Rumson.

And on Sunday, the sun is slated to shine on …

The annual Rumson Halloween Parade from 3 to 5 p.m. starting at Rogers Park. The festivities begin with a parade line-up at 3:15 p.m. and judging and trick-or-treating locations.
