EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — The second annual #EHTPride Festival will be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21, in the parking lot of Egg Harbor Township High School.

On stage will be magician/entertainer and Egg Harbor Township High School alumnus Chad Juros, who will perform a 45-minute interactive magic show. Juros has been featured on "Good Morning America," Penn & Teller’s "Fool Us" and the "Chriss Angel Mindfreak" reality show.

Committed community and school-associated organizations include the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard, the township Recreation Department, STOP the Heroin, the township Police Department, Inland Family Success Center, Family Service Association Teen Center, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority and Insight Workforce Solutions.

Other presenters and activities include more than 50 Egg Harbor Township School District academic, extra-curricular, performing arts and school fundraising groups, school bus tours, varsity athletic competitions, high school building tours, a free bounce house, laser tag, RC2U portable remote controlled 24-feet-by-20-feet car track and other hands-on games for kids.
