Union County, NJ – Season by season, Union County offers many unique and unusual opportunities for relaxation, enrichment, and just plain fun.

“If the winter winds chase you indoors this weekend, you can come inside and enjoy a great show at the Union County Performing Arts Center, or spend the afternoon at our Trailside Nature & Science Center,” said Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh. “Whatever your age or ability, the Freeholder Board is proud to support recreation programs for all to enjoy.”

The Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) makes its home in the County’s historic Rahway Theatre, conveniently located in the heart of the historic Rahway Arts District.

Among the offerings this weekend, UCPAC is pleased to present DINOSAURS, a rollicking puppet show that kicks off the 2015 Sensory Friendly Theatre series supported by the Freeholder Board.

The Trailside Nature & Science Center is located in the sprawling Watchung Reservation, at 452 New Providence Road in Mountainside. Admission is free every day, seven days a week, and Trailside offers a full slate of affordable programs for all ages.
