Labor Day Weekend at the Jersey Shore

Aaahh…Labor Day Weekend at the Jersey Shore. So many claim it to be the last weekend of summer, and recognize it with an air of sadness. But that’s simply not the case: Personally, I acknowledge Halloween as the end of summer at the Jersey Shore…even if that’s not the “official” end. In fact, those few weeks that follow Labor Day are potentially the best times. It gets a bit less crowded, the weather is not too hot and not too cool (still great beach weather), the kids go back to school so routines return, and there’s a freshness in the air that is invigorating. So don’t be sad about summer coming to an end – if you live at the Jersey Shore, you still have plenty of “summer” to look forward to.

If you are down the shore this weekend, here are sampling of events you don’t want to miss:

  • Garden State Wine Festival: Saturday and Sunday from noon -5pm, Garden State Wine Growers will be hosting the Wine Festival at Allaire Village in Wall Township.
  • Spring Lake Art Walk: The Spring Lake Chamber of Commerce hosts their Labor Day celebration Art Walk down Third Avenue on Saturday (rain date on 9/1/13).
  • Monmouth Park BBQ & Craft Beer Festival: Celebrate everything barbecue at Monmouth Park Racetrack on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy ribs, pulled pork, and brisket served up by some of NJ’s best barbecue joints – then cool off in their beer garden!
  • Fair Haven Fireman’s Fair: Enjoy games, rides and entertainment at NJ’s largest Fireman’s Fair – Friday and Saturday, 6pm – 11pm.

But whatever you do, don’t think of this weekend as the end of Jersey Shore fun for the year! There’s plenty to do and much to look forward to in the weeks to come, including the Feast of San Gennaro in Belmar, Red Bank’s Street Fair, the Manasquan Arts & Crafts Fair, Long Branch’s 38th annual Clearwater Festival, Make A Wish Foundation’s annual Beach Ball at Bar Anticipation, and so much more. So, come to the Jersey Shore ~ where the fun never ends!
