Chilean Bakery will be having its popular block party today, October 2nd, from 2 p.m. till 6 o’clock at night.
There will be entertainment including live music from Retro Rock, Los Del Sur, Blue Man, Raices Chileans, and Grupo Araucaria.
There will also be Chilean Bakery favorites such as empanadas, Anticuchos (shish kabobs), fried fish, Pastel de Choclo along with menu specials.
The South American café has been in Roselle Park at the corner of Hemlock Street and East Lincoln Avenue since 2012. It holds block parties to thank the community while celebrating Fiestas Patrias, which is also known as 18 Chico. The two-day holiday celebrates Chile’s independence from Spanish rule. The celebration is unofficially held close to the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere – which occurs in September.
Chilean Bakery’s address is 222 East Lincoln Avenue and their phone number is (908) 241-3684.
