Events this Week: September 27 – October 4

A ton of events were canceled due to weather last weekend, so be sure to keep an eye on things as the weekend approaches. This is a relatively quiet weekend despite some great goings-on. Next weekend, and every weekend after that through October, things take off with Halloween and Pumpkin-themed events. Keep an eye on our weekly events lists, or pick up a copy of the weekly Cape May County Herald, to stay on top of local happenings.
