Celebrate Labor Day at Congress Hall’s Music Festival

CAPE MAY – The summer season is coming to an unofficial, end and America’s Oldest Seaside Resort will send it off with a family-friendly bash on the Grand Lawn. Congress Hall will host the second annual music festival on Sunday, Sept. 3 from 4 to 9:30 p.m.

The free live entertainment includes performances by three amazing bands, beginning at 5 p.m. Major Thrice, a funk rock blues trio from Ocean County, will get the crowd rocking. Next up will be The Bastard Sons of Captain Mey, homegrown musicians who have garnered quite a following for their roots/Americana music. Little Country, hailing from Norfolk, Va., will close out the evening with their rock and jazz sounds, which are deeply rooted in classic Americana.

Guests can also enjoy the All-American Picnic and beer tent, serving up cool brews and BBQ favorites like hotdogs, hamburgers, fried chicken and fresh salads. Family-friendly activities like tie dying and face painting will also take place. Tickets for the picnic are $16 for adults and $10 for children ages 5-12.

Rain date is Monday, Sept. 4. Congress Hall is located at 200 Congress Pl., Cape May. For more information, visit www.caperesorts.com.
