Typically an early June weekend, the one squeezed between Memorial Day (summer’s unofficial start) and the season’s actual beginning on June 20 is a quieter one, with school’s getting ready to pack it in for the year and families biding their time until the 4th of July holiday.
But such is not the case here on our glorious sandbar, all of you fabulous LBI lovers, for this weekend is chock full of events and happenings – up and down the entire 18 miles of our Island.
It’s going to be a good one, folks. There’s something for everyone. So grab your mom, dad, grandma and grandpa, your BFF’s, your squad, Uncle Sal and Aunt Jean – and don’t forget the pups!
