Every Monday and Tuesday July through September, Newark riverfront yoga and zumba classes filled Essex County Riverfront Park with life and energy. Over the summer, over 400 Newarkers stretched, jumped, and sweated alongside the mighty Passaic River. Special thanks to Newark Yoga Movement and Zumba Fitness with Beverly!
On September 13, 20, and 27, Newark Riverfront Revival organized a concert series featuring R&B, gospel, and house. The September 13 jazz R&B show featured the Newark-based Melectrix band. The September 20 featured the Symphony Hall Special Ensemble. The final September 27 concert introduced DJ Omar Abdullah a lifetime West Ward resident to the riverfront.
DJ Omar Abdallah spins house for a loving crowd:
