The 2007 Hamilton Park Festival on June 9th was a success! The weather was perfect - not too hot, and no rain. Jersey City residents voted in record numbers for the final Park Renovation Ballot, and a good time was had by all. The performers included The Lonesome Prarie Dogs, Nobuki Takemen, All You HorseRiders, NBK & Raw ElementZ - Breakdancing Performance, Bryan Beninghove, and The Impulse. Thanks to the sponsors, performers, attendees and everyone that volunteered their time at the festival.
