Summer is Here and Wildwood Events are Heating Up

The summer season is getting into full swing and every weekend in June is packed with activities.  In North Wildwood, there will be a parade each of the first 3 weekends in June for the Elks, American Legion, and the VFW.  Experience small town America with a good old fashioned patriotic parade.  Celebrate the service and commitment of these fine organizations to our communities throughout the United States.

Father's Day Weekend (June 13-15) will bring an Import Truck and Car Show to the area.  The vehicles will be on display on the Boardwalk on Father's Day or you can see them at the Naval Air Station Wildwood on Saturday.   Additionally, the Mummers Brigade will be in North Wildwood with a block party in the Entertainment District Saturday afternoon followed by demonstrations by the winners of the New Year's Parade Competition in Philadelphia.  Cars, truck, airplanes, and a Mummer's demonstration - what better way to celebrate Father's Day.

Wildwoods Restaurant Week kicks off on June 15th and goes through the 20th.  What a great week for an early summer vacation.  Rates are lower during the week and now you can have some great food at a value price as well.  More than 20 restaurants from all over the island will be participating and the deal includes a 4-course meal for $30. 

June 21 -22 brings the Maritime Festival to the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse.  In addition to artists, historians, and authors, there will be crafts, food and activities throughout the weekend to celebrate New Jersey's rich maritime history.  Additionally, you can take a tour of our beautiful lighthouse and see their amazing organic gardens.

The final weekend of June boasts a huge soccer competition on the beach, the North Wildwood Italian Festival, and the start of Friday Night Fireworks.

June is also the start of the summer concert series in Wildwood at Fox Park and Wildwood Crest at Centennial Park.  Check out the schedules and take advantage of great music at the beach and under the stars.

So, don't wait to make your plans for a beach getaway.  After this long, cold winter, the time is now.  We are ready to welcome you at the Candlelight Inn.  Make your reservations now.
