5 Things to Do This Sunday
A sampling of events taking place in and around Parsippany Sunday.
Still haven't figured out how to spend your Sunday? Below, Patch presents some suggestions to help you maximize your altruism, education or fun potential.
- Pink Letter Day: More than 7,000 walkers are expected to come out to the Mack-Cali Business Campus at 1 Campus Drive in Parsippany for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk. The noncompetitive event will include a tribute to breast cancer survivors, education on preventing and detecting the disease and community building. The event starts at 8 a.m. For more information, call 800-227-2345.
- Season of Rejoicing: Sukkot is a Jewish holiday that marks a time of harvest and a time of joy. The week-long biblically based observance known as the Festival of Taberacles or Feast of Booths commemorates the 40-year period during which the Israelites wandered in the desert, living in temporary shelters. Conservative Jews can attend Sukkot services being held Sunday at Adath Shalom, 841 Mountain Way in Morris Plains. For service times, call 973-539-4440. The synagogue will also present a 9 a.m. Back to School event for kids from kindergarten through sixth grade. Meanwhile, Temple Beth Am, a Reform congregation, hosts School to Sukkah from 10 a.m. until noon. This event takes place at the shul, 879 S. Beverwyck Road. For information on all of Temple Beth Am's Sukkot offerings, call 973-887-0046.
- The Beauty of Autumn: If you love fall, enjoy the season's crisp air and take in its wondrous colors at the Moderate Fall Foliage Hike at Pyramid Mountain. The Morris County Parks Commission event starts at 1 p.m. at Boonton's Pyramid Mountain, 472a Boonton Ave. Participation doesn't cost a thing, and folks age 7 and up are welcome to witness autumn's wondrousness from the vantage point of the mountain's trails and overlooks.
- Art and Culture: The Mount Tabor Museum, at 31 Simpson Ave., presents "Antonio Petruccelli, His Art and Life." The exhibit sheds light on Petruccelli, the innovative and once-heralded Mount Tabor illustrator who gained acclaim starting in the 1930s for his iconic magazine covers for the New Yorker, Time, Fortune and other publications. The art show runs Sunday from 2-4 p.m.
- Singing for LGBT Lives: Pop duo Jason and deMarco are artists and activists who speak out against gay teen suicide and the harm they say anti-LGBT attitudes and legal inequality have on youth. Known for lush harmonies, uplifting lyrics and empowering messages, Jason and deMarco's songs focus on everyday challenges and relationships. The out and proud twosome bring their musical inspiration to Morristown's Church of the Redeemer, 36 South St., at 7 p.m. The free concert is a fund-raiser for S.A.F.E., a Houston-based service group that offers programs geared to help and protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth.
