Hear Ye! Hear Ye! 10-Year-Old Town Crier Debuts
We introduced you to Joey Rihl last month.
Joey Rihl, Haddonfield's 10-year-old town crier, made his official debut Saturday at the historic Indian King Tavern.
In honor of Haddonfield’s Tricentennial, the Friends of the Indian King Tavern hosted a contest and selected five town criers to host events.
Rihl is the youngest selected and was selected as Huffington Post’s “person of the week” after he won the contest. The other town criers are Rosario Licciardello, Craig Burgess, Bob DeMinico and Rich LaLena.
In addition to Joey’s debut, Levram The Great, 18th-century magician, will perform two shows at 2 and 3 p.m. doing tricks and sleight of hand from the Colonial Era. Admission is free.
Visiting the Indian King Tavern is like stepping back in time to the Colonial Era, with its period rooms authentic décor and historical details. The Indian King Tavern is the location where the seal of New Jersey was adopted and where New Jersey became a state in 1777. It is now a museum and important part of our state’s history.
