KARYN MALINOWSKI TO SERVE AS GRAND MARSHAL OF OPEN SPACE PACE PARADE

MANALAPAN, NJ – August 13, 2014 – Dr. Karyn Malinowski, director of the Rutgers Equine Science Center, will be the grand marshal of the Open Space Pace & Festival Parade on September 20, 2014.

The parade for the 3rd Annual Open Space Day will begin at 10 a.m. from the Hall of Records in Freehold Borough, take the marchers down Main Street and conclude at Freehold Raceway.




The parade also features the Freehold High School Marching Band, the Wells Fargo Stage Coach and more than 70 New Jersey horses and riders from various equine organizations.

The Open Space Pace & Festival, which debuted in 2012, was conceived as a way to raise awareness about the relationship between the racing and breeding industry with the preservation of open space in the state of New Jersey.

In addition to the parade, the festivities include a petting zoo, educational exhibits, live harness racing, a concert and fireworks – all at Freehold Raceway.

There will be equine and agricultural displays, a mare and foal exhibit, food trucks, a blacksmiths contest and a Medieval Times demonstration.

The post-racing concert features The Nerds and, as the opening act, the Eddie Testa Band.

Opportunities for corporate parties, family reunions or other social gatherings, as well as sponsorships on Open Space Pace & Festival Day are still available. Thus far, more than $28,000 has been donated to equine and agricultural non-profits.

The event raises funds from sponsorships, ad journal sales, tailgate space sales and vendor booth sales.

For more information contact Brett Taft at 732-577-4059.
