Once again, this annual event provided something for everyone. As Hopatcong Lake Regional News covered this hometown event, the first thing we realized was “Everyone seems to know everyone else.” Which is why this event always evolves to be such a great community gathering! It draws everyone together and reinforces the community that is Hopatcong.
