PATERSON, N.J. -- The Great Falls Festival had an enthusiastic revival kickoff Saturday as hundreds attended the once-annual event, NorthJersey.com reported.

A popular attraction was “Dunk the Mayor.” Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres invited festival goers to take out their frustration over city issues by hitting the target to dunk him in water, NorthJersey.com said.

The festival wasn’t held several times in recent years due to floods, city finances and organizational problems, the story said. This year’s festival, though, was successful and welcomed by the crowds, NorthJersey.com said.

Organizers were hoping to attract more than 10,000 visitors during the three-day event, according to NorthJersey.com.
