It’s finally here! The unofficial start to summer at the New Jersey Shore is Memorial Day weekend. Here on Long Beach Island, we know it’s summer when the boulevard lights go on and the merchants open their doors for the season. It’s a wonderful time to enjoy the warmer weather, the sun, and all that our beautiful island has to offer. Once you arrive and are settled in, the question is what to do? There are so many things to do on LBI this Memorial Day weekend, so here’s a quick list of all the fun (and relaxing) things you can enjoy this holiday weekend, courtesy of the Long Beach Island Chamber of Commerce website.
For anyone interested in fishing, there’s the 15th Annual Beach Haven Marlin & Tuna Club (BHMTC) LBI Cup Invitational Tournament. All registered anglers are welcome to join us for weigh ins and awards. Detail are available at their website lbicup.com
The 37th Annual Barnegat Light Fire Company Auction is at 5:30 pm and is one of the fire company’s biggest fundraisers. There’s nothing more fun than winning a gift at an auction, so click here for details https://www.facebook.com/events/2454885501210819/
