This Weekend in the Wildwoods Oct 15th – 17th

Since this past weekend was the last weekend for Morey’s Piers, we have been getting tons of questions asking what will be open this weekend.

Not to worry, there is still plenty to do down here this weekend. Let’s break down what’s going on and what will be open.

This weekend is the Fabulous ’50s & Beyond Weekend!

Friday night features a ’50s Dance Party with the Cameos at the Wildwoods Convention Center from 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $16 plus tax per person. A FREE street fair will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. featuring classic cars, food and craft vendors, a Doo Wop Bus Tour, and live entertainment. Saturday night’s concert in the Wildwoods Convention Center begins at 7 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.) featuring music from the 1950s with Little Anthony & The Imperials, the 1960s with Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone, and the 1970’s with The Spinners and The Mahoney Brothers performing as Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Tickets are on sale at the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce (3306 Pacific Avenue). Additional ticket sales will be at the Wildwoods Convention Center Box Office on the day of the event. (You can also purchase them by clicking this link Ticketmaster.com).

“What’s Open on the Boardwalk”

Let’s break down the shops, stores, and restaurants on the boardwalk. For the most part, many of the businesses on the boardwalk close after Morey’s Piers close for the season. Since they just closed last weekend, and since the 50s weekend brings in a crowd, this might be the last weekend many of these places will be open.

For example, Next weekend (24th) for Sam’s Pizza. (Mack’s already closed for the season at both of their locations).

There will be some arcades open like the Retro Arcade and Gateway 26 to name a few. Not too many restaurants will be open up there but some shops will be open.

Since all the places upon the boardwalk are individually ran and operated, they don’t have a setlist of hours.
