Saturday I had an opportunity to slip away for the day and visit “Jerseyfest Model Kit & Statue Fair”. I had learned about Jerseyfest from a flyer at Resintopia, a show I attended in the spring. From what I have been able to gather, Jerseyfest started around 2006 as a party of like minded figure enthusiasts meeting in someone’s basement. It grew to about 150 people and last year moved out of the basement into a hotel venue. This year was my first year attending and it was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Fairfield, NJ.
