"In 2017, National Day Calendar® began celebrating each state in the order they entered the union starting the week of Independence Day and ending with Hawaii. We highlight a small part of each states’ history, foods and the people who make up the state. Many states have their own state celebrations" So basically every state is getting a day. Really in that scope nothing special about New Jersey..

I would celebrate loading up at the numerous roadside garden and fruit markets along Rte 206 from home in Mays Landing to Princeton. Did it last weekend and commented in the car the whole way "people need to see this calming, beautiful country of NJ" Our image is Smokestacks, stacked traffic, Sopranos etc

On the way out to moving to Florida I would have roadside stands so you could pick your last fantastic food up on the way out. And at the last point before leaving New Jersey I would have a photo op behind a sign that says I did it for as long as I could I stayed with you you failed me.
