The Festival of the Sea has been one of Point Pleasant Beach’s top events. Beginning in September of 1975 as an end of summer gathering, the festival has grown in to the major event that it is today. This year the festival will take place on September 16, 2006.
This Seafood festival is held downtown on both Arnold and Bay Avenues. Local restaurants and vendors provide the large crowds with delicacies such as crab cakes, shrimp skewers, paella, soups and bisques, lobster, and other seafood items. Don’t like seafood? No problem, there are plenty of other varieties of food to sample!
In addition to the food available, there are literally hundreds of craft vendors featuring handmade items. Shoppers are bound to find that unusual item sought after. For entertainment, there is a stage set up on the corner of Arnold and River Avenues that plays host to local musicians and other acts.
