This Week in Seaside Heights: Fireworks, Movies, Music & More!

Welcome to This Week in Seaside Heights!

Each week through the fall, we tell you about fun events and activities in the family-friendly resort just across the road from Exit 82!

While it’s the last week of August, Seaside Heights offers a full slate of events through December (check out a few of the upcoming event at the end).

Each week, you can experience a diverse array of exciting events, including free concerts, bonfires, movies, camping, and more! And of course, let’s not forget the bay and ocean beaches, arcades, restaurants, games of chance, and Casino Pier & Breakwater Beach.

You can see all events — along with lodging, entertainment, dining, and more information — here. And, you can always take a peek at what’s happening in Seaside Heights on the live cam here.

Seaside Heights: Clean beaches that are continually voted some of the best at the shore, delicious restaurants, family friendly entertainment, and a boardwalk that will make anyone smile.
