Now that we have made it past these storms this week, it is time for fun activities to come back to the Wildwoods. Morey’s piers will be open for their last weekend for their 2015 season this weekend and the Italian festival and the Seafood & Music Festival is this weekend too! I am more excited for the “Race of Gentlemen” that is happened this weekend on the beach!. If you love pre-1950s cars then this is the place for you. The press release below has all of the information. I hope to see you there!
