Quiet Festival Returns Nov. 4 and 5

Ocean City once again will welcome the calmer season with its annual Quiet Festival. This year’s event will take place Nov. 4 and 5 and will celebrate all the resources of the Ocean City Community Center.

The Ocean City Free Public Library, Ocean City Arts Center, Ocean City Historical Museum, Ocean City Aquatic and Fitness Center and Howard S. Stainton Senior Center each will be host to activities during the two-day festival.

Some of the activities will include:

Royalty Storytime: Young princes and princesses are invited to come in royal attire to listen to a story with Miss Ocean City, Junior Miss Ocean City and Little Miss Ocean City.

Building Block/Brick Demo: Lego fans, here’s your chance to show off. Create your brick/block display and register for a building block demonstration and competition. You provide your own bricks/legos and displays can be made in advance.

Teddy Bear Tea and Ballet Demo with Miss New Jersey: Enjoy tea and storytime or the calm and quiet side of ballet in separate events with Miss New Jersey Kaitlyn Schoeffel.

Crossword Puzzle Competition: Crossword puzzle devotees are invited to a friendly competition featuring three puzzles of progressive difficulty. Two finalists will compete on boards, so the public can see the silent showdown.

Quiet Pet Competition: The traditional showcase event of the Quiet Festival takes place at the Senior Center.
