Avalon/Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update July 7th, 2016

 LONG & FOSTER’S SECOND ANNUAL CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY will take place Saturday, July 9th, from 11am to 3pm.  Whether you’re checking in, checking out, or here for the weekend, stop by our office for grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and a cold beverage!

GRAY SKIES COULDN’T STOP THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE this weekend!  Numerous July 4th celebrations took place on the Island this weekend, including fireworks displays in Avalon and Stone Harbor, despite some rain.   The busy weekend began Thursday evening as visitors made their way to the Island, and continued through Monday evening.

IF YOU MISSED THE FIREWORKS, or simply want more, catch them again Friday and Saturday evenings on the Wildwood beach.  Due to the weather forecast Wildwood postponed their July 4th display; their traditional Friday night show will take place as scheduled on July 8th, and Saturday night (July 9th) the crowd will be treated to the big July 4th show.

Avalon’s huge fireworks display over the ocean delighted crowds on the beach, beach paths, and boardwalk.  In the foreground an iPad is held up to record the show.

 STAR-SPANGLED SING ALONG: Facebook users will get a kick out of this patriotic sing along, orchestrated by three Stone Harbor lifeguards over the weekend!

SUMMER FLOUNDER SEASON is heating up with good catches of the flatties being reported from Long Beach Island to Cape May.  Many keepers are being reported in the back bays, with some of the larger fish weighing five to seven pounds.  As the bay water warms up, watch for the fish to move to the cooler inlet and ocean waters.  Why not spend a day fishing?  Rent a small boat at Smuggler’s Cove in Stone Harbor to fish back bay waters for the day, or climb aboard the Miss Avalon for a four-hour ocean trip.
