Lawmakers in Trenton granted the Brick kids wish and made the blueberry the official fruit in 2004.
Drive In Movie Friday in Brick....Disney's The Lion King .... This summer it is much different then past summer's in the midst of the Corononavirus Pandemic and it's a challenge for families to come up with some fun and "safe" events for kids and the family.
