Fall Family Festival Sea Isle City NJ
The promenade in Sea Isle turns into a flea market of sorts with vendors selling all kinds of wares. Sunglasses, purses, clothing, accessories, various specialty foods, crafts, toys, collectables, etc were all on display for sale. I’d say there are probably a hundred or so vendors though I didn’t count.
The fall family festival is definitely a “G” rated event and is meant, of course, for the family to enjoy. A free concert was held at the excursion center, JFK Boulevard was bustling with local restaurants who set up their own food and drink tents. In addition for the grown ups all the local watering holes are open for those who needed a break from the crowds and shopping.
A lot of people attended. It can get crowded on the promenade but for those who love to shop with the view of the ocean in the background it was a good time. Personally, I got a pair of cool sunglasses cheap and a nice helping of my favorite fall family festival snack ….. toffee pecans.
Check it out sometime. The center of the action is JFK Boulevard and the vending booths stretch for many blocks in each direction from here along the promenade.
