Hey there all of you fabulous LBI lovers and happy February!
When the heck did that happen?
Don’t fret, as of today, Friday, February 3, we’re only 112 days out from summer. But by no means are we sans awesomeness here on the sandbar.
Just because there’s a little football game happening this Sunday, doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to cheer about here on our beloved LBI.
Quite the contrary, actually.
So, check out the many ways you can be Super on the Sandbar this weekend!

St. Francis’ Super Plunge XIII. The 13th Annual Super “Plunge” Sunday is scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday at 1 p.m. Participants are invited to brave the icy, cold Atlantic Ocean, and will have plenty of time to be home for the big game. The event served as a fundraiser organized by St. Francis Community Center and the Swim Teams of Southern Regional High School, will take place at the 48th Street Beach in the Brant Beach section of Long Beach Township. The “Plunge” has become a popular community favorite during the winter doldrums on Long Beach Island.
