The R-FH Area Weekend: Hanga Loose, 5K Run, Art, Market & Gardens

Well, Rumson-Fair Haven area friends and fans, the weekend is looking nice, according to the National Weather Service.

The sun will be out and activities will abound.

Here’s what’s going on in the area:


• Don’t forget Hanga Loose Fridays at Umberto’s in Fair Haven. It’s a time to hang out in memory of the restaurant’s beloved Silvio, a friend to all.

Stop by the River Road place’s back room, mangia and chat it up!

• Then there’s A Night of Wine Tasting benefit, the proceeds of which will go to an area favorite charity — Monmouth Day Care Center.

The event, held from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Junior League of Monmouth County’s headquarters at 55 Center Street, Rumson, will feature hors d’oeuvres and wine pairings.

• A first, the Girls on the Run 5K, kicks off the day in Fair Haven with a start time of 9 a.m. at Fair Haven Fields.

Young girls in third through eighth grades will be running the course that ends where it begins — at Fair Haven Fields.

Run on, girls!
