The 2017 season will be the best yet in Seaside Heights. It began in February with the Polar Bear Plunge and ends on New Year’s Eve with First Night Ocean County.

The summer season kicked off in mid-May with the Jersey Shore Festival and entered second gear over Memorial Day weekend.

Now, in third gear with summer vacation season at its peak, be sure to enjoy Seaside Heights’ diverse array of a exciting major and weekly 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. It’s always a great time to visit Seaside Heights! 

Be sure to check out the new ferris wheel and roller coaster, Hydrus, too!
