This Week in Seaside Heights: Oktoberfest, a Vintage Car Showdown, Kid’s Fishing Tournament, and Columbus Day Parade!
Welcome to This Week in Seaside Heights!
Each week through the fall, we’ll be telling you about fun events and activities in this family-friendly resort just across the road from Exit 82!
Now that summer is officially behind us, Seaside Heights is taking advantage of the festive fall season featuring a number of events and parades that the entire family can enjoy.
As ‘local’s summer’ winds down, the bay and ocean beaches are still open for a long stroll, while the arcades and restaurants also keep their doors open throughout the fall.
No matter what time of the year it is, it’s always a great time to visit Seaside Heights!
