I’m ready to get out and enjoy life with the family and I know you are too! The problem is knowing where to go and when to catch all the great things happening at the Jersey Shore right now. I just came across 5 suggestions from The Patch and I’m totally on board! I wanted to share these with you guys too in case you missed it.
First and foremost...the beach...most are scheduled to open for Memorial Day Weekend but you should check in advance because some will be open daily, but some will operate on weekends only until mid-June.
Go Fly A Kite! The Wildwoods International Kite Festival Is On This Year
People travel from all over to fly their hand made, colorful kite creations on the beach behind the Wildwoods Convention Center. It happens this coming weekend starting Friday at noon. At night, you can take in the illuminated kite fly at Rio Grande Ave beach at 9 p.m! Now that's Instagram worthy. Monday will feature the World Indoor Kite Competition from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. inside the Center where kite fliers will show how they can fly a kite without wind. Really...that's a thing?
Film Friday At Ocean County Arts Guild
The Ocean County Artists' Guild is hosting its first Film Friday in Island Heights. There will be live music by the band Johnny Nameless at 6 p.m., a short documentary will be shown at 7 p.m. about Franke Parese, a 94-year-old World War II veteran who lives and rides his bike at Jersey Shore. The Ocean County Artists Guild is located at 22 Chestnut Ave in Island Heights. This sounds like a great date night of culture and class!
