The Memorial Day Weekend, as the official kick-off to the summer season, was quite spectacular here in the Wildwoods. The weather was really great for an early summer weekend and the beaches were crowded with sun worshipers and the more adventurous types who took a dip in the ocean. It is no wonder that so many flock to the Wildwoods for the summer. The beach was named the Top beach in New Jersey. The results were announced at the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium/New Jersey Sea Grant's (NJMSC/NJSG) annual State of the Shore Media Event on Thursday, May 27th.
Coupled with the beach, the strong breezes made for a wonderful kite festival. The scene of elaborate kites flying over the beach was really spectacular. Additionally, the boardwalk was full of people taking in their old favorites as well as checking out some new activities that were added to this summer treasure. Probably the biggest boardwalk hype was over Morey’s Piers new ghost ship, Ignis Fatuus, which provided heart stopping thrills to those who waited to experience it first-hand:
Summer is upon us and the Candlelight Inn is within a short distance to all the sun, fun, and thrills you could want. We are waiting to see you.
