Now that summer is gone (yes we are very sad about it too) it’s time for fall in the Wildwoods. Fall means pumpkin spice drinks, brown leaves, and spooky nights. For us here at the Wildwood Video Archive, we always love the great events that take place in the Wildwoods and at Morey’s Piers.


This year Morey’s Piers is offering three (3) amazing events this fall. These events are, “The Zombie Mud Run,” “Oktoberfest” and “Boardwalk Bunk-Down.”

The Zombie Mud Run is a “post-apocalyptic zombie 5K obstacle race on the beach that takes place on September 19, 2015. The course involves obstacles such as sand mounds, slides and quicksand pits. According to their website, “During the race, “Humans” will wear a flag football belt with three flags representing their vital organs, which “Zombie” participants will try to “eat” by capturing the flag. Whether you survive or get infected, everyone is invited to refuel at Wrecker’s Beach Grille located at Raging Waters Water Park at the end of Mariner’s Pier. A variety of food and beverages will be available for purchase, including a selection of beers for those 21 years and older.”

“To participate as a “Human” or “Zombie,” runners must be 13 years of age or older and pre-register at Registration ranges from $35 to $85 depending on the running category. All participants will receive a complimentary ride wristband valid for the amusement rides on all three piers. Registration opens at 7:00am with race times starting every 30 minutes from 9:00am to 11:30pm. A Zombie Mud Run Junior will also be held for kids ages 12 and under.”


Oktoberfest runs from September 19 through October 11, 2015 at Jumbo’s on Morey’s Mariner’s landing. Besides the normal Jumbo’s menu, Jumbo’s will be offering special themed selections of Bavarian pretzels, bratwurst, German potato salad, and some great beer. For more information visit


The Boardwalk Bunk-Down is a great event for families. On Saturday, October 3, 2015, Morey’s Piers opens up  Adventure Pier for a large sleepover. According to Morey’s Piers website, “Tickets for Boardwalk Bunk-Down are $49 per person for early registrants who purchase by September 1, 2015. Regular registration is $55 per person and must be purchased before October 1, 2015. Discounted tickets of $35 per person are available for all season pass holders; must present valid season pass at event check-in. No on-site registrations are permitted.

We hope to see you this fall!
