This great event helps to not only bring the community together, but it also supports the community. It also features much more than just a run. There are vendors, food, activities and just pure family fun. Starting early in the morning, this annual event is a great chance to get the family out nice and early for a fun morning that doesn’t have to take up your entire day.


Rock 2 Adopt


If you love animals, music and supporting your local community, there may be no better event for you than Rock 2 Adopt. This annual festival is hosted by the Popcorn Park Zoo and features local musicians hosting concerts to support the adoption of animals.


By attending this event, you can come away with a fun day listening to music, eating great food, seeing some awesome animals and possibly giving a home to a new pet. What better way is there to spend a day?


Ocean County Irish Festival


In Ocean County, the Irish get more than just one day a year! Why? Because who doesn’t love to want to celebrate being Irish!

This festival celebrates all things Irish: food, dance, music and yes, BEER! Taking place near the water in Ocean County, this festival is fun for the whole family. Food trucks, local vendors, musicians and dance troupes all converge every year for a fun celebration that starts in the morning and lasts well into the evening.
