The Annual North Bergen Winter Festival is always a total rager (just look at the happy faces in photo #6!). Everybody gets wasted and rides ponies, listens to kids singing Christmas carols, and passes out in a portable toilet for a long winter's nap. At least, that's how one area man is believed to have celebrated New Jersey's premiere holiday festival! According to a report in the Star-Ledger, a 61-year-old man was locked into the porta-potty by a Department of Public Works employees who were cleaning up after the morning after.
The porta-potty was locked for transport at about 7:42 a.m yesterday morning. About 10 minutes later, a passer-by heard a call for help emanating from the toilet. Police and North Hudson Regional Rescue and Fire officials raced to the scene, and the unidentified porta-prisoner, whom police described as "drunk," was liberated. "No one has ever heard of anything like this happening here," township spokesman Paul Swibinski remarked. Indeed, this is the craziest thing to happen in North Bergen since that wild Luau night at the township's municipal pool!
