play

This weekend’s concerts at the Prudential Center are Carín León on Friday, Amor En Vivo El Concierto on Saturday and Maluma on Sunday. On Thursday, the Devils play their official season opener at the Rock.

With apple- and pumpkin-picking season underway, the West Milford Police Department is taking measures to try to alleviate traffic on the weekends through the rest of the month, specifically on Greenwood Lake and Warwick turnpikes. There may be heavy traffic in the area, so plan extra time or alternate routes for travel.

At the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, it’s New York vs. Toronto on the pitch Saturday.

Elsewhere in North Jersey, be on the lookout for roadwork that will cause lane closures on major roadways.
