Some of the notable performers you can check out include Team Redline, Bat Copter & Bat Mobile, Jason Flood, and the Raiders Demo Team.
Dinosaurs After Dark
Are you a dinosaur enthusiast? Are your kids the one asking you to bring them to a dinosaur-themed event? If the answer is yes to either question, you would not want to miss the Dinosaurs After Dark event, which will be available until October 27th, 2017. Event-goers will be taken on a fun and mysterious journey into a shadowy, prehistoric world. The thing about this event is that it is unlike your usual trip to the zoo. There is a T-Rex on the loose and danger lurks in every corner!
Seaside Heights Oktoberfest
Remember to set your alarm clock to go off early on October 1st, 2017 because the second annual Oktoberfest will be kicking off early at 11 am with the Tapping of the Keg event! If you are attending the event, you are entitled to one tasting session. You will also be able to check out seasonal craft beer, authentic German food, great bands, a range of food trucks, as well as works from local artisan and crafters. If you are bringing your kids along with you, there is a kids’ zone to keep them entertained!
21st Annual Pine Barrens Jamboree
Located at Wells Mills County Park, the annual Pine Barrens Jamboree event features a full day of cultural demonstrations, history and nature programs, traditional crafts, and music of the pines.
