MAYOR’S SUMMER MESSAGE
After enduring a long, cold winter, it’s great to have everyone back in town! We’ve been very busy preparing for the summer of 2014, and I am certain that you’ll have a wonderful time while you’re here.
Like many people, you may be eager to choose a good book, grab your beach chair and hit the sand – and who could blame you? Sea Isle City’s beaches are an ideal getaway for anyone who’s in need of rest, relaxation and recreation. However, while you’re on the beach, be sure to remember a few important details that everyone needs to know. For example, don’t forget that Sea Isle City has specific beaches for swimming, surfing, kayaking, sailing, volleyball, kite-surfing, rafting and surf-fishing. Beach-goers should also remember to swim in designated bathing areas only while lifeguards are on duty. The Sea Isle City Beach Patrol is a fine organization made up of seasoned professionals, who are very good at their jobs – however, our lifeguards are not able to keep you safe if they can’t see you. For information about where you can swim and other beach regulations, visit the Beach Patrol’s website, www.sicbp.com, or phone 263-3655.
Sea Isle City’s calendar of events is filled with activities that will help you re-connect with loved ones and shed the cares of everyday life. Each week during the summer, a variety of free events take place at the Excursion Park Band Shell, where our popular Family Dance Parties delight the young and the young-at-heart every Monday and Thursday night. Don’t miss our free Movies Under the Stars on Tuesdays, which feature Hollywood titles your entire family will enjoy. Then, on Wednesdays, you can show-off your vocal talents during Karaoke Night at the Band Shell. If you’re a fan of live music, you’ll love our “Sea Isle City’s Got Talent” competitions on Fridays or our free concerts on Saturdays. We have different bands scheduled each Saturday night – including some very popular tribute bands – so don’t miss a moment of the fun!
In addition to our weekly entertainment at Excursion Park, we also offer many other attractions throughout the summer season, including guided beach tours, a weekly farmer’s market, children’s beach activities, sports camps and several exciting athletic competitions. Along the way, don’t forget that Sea Isle City’s new Visitor’s Website, www.VisitSICNJ.com, and “Official Mobile App” will help you make the most of your valuable time. Our website features a calendar of events, a business directory, jitney schedules and other useful information, and our mobile app, which is free to download to your Apple or Android device, is a “must have” for people on the go.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer in Sea Isle City, where “The Forecast is FUN!”
Smile…You’re in Sea Isle
Mayor Leonard C. Desiderio
