The facility just opened on Chimney Rock Road in Bridgewater.
It is the largest indoor paintball arena both in New Jersey and the whole east coast—and it has come to Bridgewater. Hardcore Paintball Arena opened its doors officially on Chimney Rock Road Friday, with Staten Island residents Harvey Schneider and Angelo DiMaggio at the helm. “We think this is a great town, and we are trying to draw kids and adults of all ages,” Schneider said. “We tell people to try it and see what it’s about.” Schneider said he actually got into this business because of his son, Vincent, who liked playing paintball. “We played at one indoor arena, but mostly outdoor ones,” he said. “I talked with my business partner, and we decided we needed to change that.” And the business stayed in the family because Schneider’s …

The annual Bernardsville Street Fair held in there through the afternoon on Sunday, attracting dribbles, if not droves, of visitors.
Those who came brought umbrellas or some real rain gear — a steady spring rain kept up for much of the annual Bernardsville Street Fair on Sunday, but for those who showed up, it just made it easier to win prizes, talk to exhibitors or pick up some a variety of foods for lunch. The street fair was to continue until 5 p.m. Skies appeared to be clearing sporadically later in the afternoon. Anthony Binkowski, who sells his wire jewelry at The Rebecca Collection on Olcott Square in Bernardsville, said he would remain at his tented booth until 5 p.m., or a little after, since many people typically show up at the end of street fairs, anyway. Maggie Morash of Bernardsville was lucky enough to win two tickets to Great Adventure in a impromptu …
Kids of all ages eat, play and enjoy a day in Basking Ridge
The streets of Basking Ridge were filled with the callouts of children, the smells of sausages, onions and other tempting foods, and the sounds of music Saturday as Bernards Township's 19th annual Charter Day was celebrated. Much of the event was on South Finley Avenue in downtown Basking Ridge, closed to traffic, and spilled onto the Henry Street parking lot and field behind the Oak Street Elementary School. Although a few showers punctuated much of the day, few people seem to be discouraged into leaving the community's biggest annual celebration — the commemoration of the founding of the Township of Bernardston on May 24, 1760, by order of King George II of Britain. Here are more scenes from Charter Day.
