Our favorite and most requested headline program for this summer event will take place at 3 p.m. next Tuesday, July 22, at the Bay View Park gazebo at 6805 Long Beach Boulevard in Long Beach Township. This rockstar summer demonstration will show us how to best protect ourselves and families when we encounter a very testy and hungry whale beached on a delta to the white house.
