Coming up this weekend (May 16 to the 18th), Seaside Heights will rock with an exciting festival that has something for everyone!

From the Jersey Shore Festival facebook page:

The Jersey Shore Festival is a 3-day music, arts, and action sports festival in Seaside Heights, NJ! The 2nd annual event will host your favorite local and visiting bands for an eclectic weekend of live music.

The festival kicks off at 6 pm on Friday, May 16th and starts at noon on Saturday the 17th and Sunday the 18th, and it's free!

My friend, Donn Parent, told me about the festival; his band, Decypher will be there....check them out on their facebook page!
