The weekend was an eventful one in the area, with two festivals taking place on Long Beach Island, Manahawkin celebrating Founders Day and Barnegat opening up its fields on Lower Shore Road.
We will share stories from our photographers and writers who have covered these events for us, including a new contributor for Patch, Steve Moran, who was a bureau chief and a reporter for the Press of Atlantic City in the 90s, and whose roots in the area go deep.
But first, we will start the day off with some .
Looks like another beautiful day coming our way: mostly sunny, with a high near 76, a low around 63, a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms at night, after 2 a.m.
Happy Monday, everyone!
