Annual Events in North Wildwood, New Jersey
Roar to the Shore September. This is the largest motorcycle meet-up on the East Coast.
Mummers Parade September. It costs you zero to join the crowd lining the street here to view the famous Mummer string bands march and dance. A string band is heavy on the banjos and has no guitars or amplification. (Did you know that the banjo is the only instrument native to America?) The bands are composed of mostly husky guys in glittering costumes. One local described them thusly: “They march into town looking like they could flatten a village.” Enthusiastic viewers are invited to dance along with them down the street. Note that the original Mummers Parade occurs on New Year’s Day in Philadelphia.
Even more Mummers.
