Sea Isle City Octoberfest

Jersey Shore fun in October? What!?!?!?

That’s right. Sea Isle City has announced that it will be hosting an annual event each October called Octoberfest.

Octoberfest was created to be a celebration of German food and of course, beer!

The Sea Isle City Chamber of Commerce is will host the first annual Octoberfest on October 20th 2007. The event will take place from noon to 6pm.

Sea Isle’s Octoberfest has something for everyone. It will include fun family events such as a treasure hunt, face painting, pony rides and apple dunking plus a variety of fun seasonal contests including pumpkin painting contests and costume contests. And what would a Jersey Shore event be without the ultimate sand castle competition.

Family events are planned to take place from 12 noon to 4pm.

Of course the main attraction to any Octoberfest is the beer garden. Sea Isle City’s festival is no different. From 2-6pm a typical German themed Octoberfest will feature dozens of various beers. Entry to the beer garden portion of the event will cost $10.

If you’re planning to come down to the Jersey Shore to celebrate Octoberfest in Sea Isle City, why not stay at the Colonnade Inn?

A Sea Isle City Vacation In June

June is the first month during which there are regularly scheduled events such as the famous Skimmer Weekend which involves live entertainment, dance contests, antique autos and more. For a full list of events, check out this calendar of things to do.

June is also the first month of the year during which it is very difficult to find a vacation rental at the Jersey Shore, especially on weekends. Although vacationing at the Jersey Shore picks up in May, it really isn’t until Memorial Day weekend (the last weekend in May) that beach vacation rentals get consistently booked up.

For that reason, we strongly advise that if you are planning a vacation to Sea Isle City or any other Jersey Shore location from Memorial Day forward, you should reserve and pay for your rental lodging several months in advance. While June isn’t the busiest month of the year, it is the first official month of the summer beach season, and gets very crowded on weekends.

In Sea Isle City, there tend to still be rental openings during the weekdays of June. Plus the beaches tend to be less crowded. So we recommend considering a trip to Sea Isle during the weekdays if you are able. The great thing about the Colonnade Inn is that we are very flexible and don’t force you into staying a whole week like many beach house rentals do. In fact, during the summer, we only have a 3 night minimum stay. So instead of paying for a whole week, you are free to save a little money by staying as few as 3 days.

Polar Bear Plunge Weekend in Sea Isle City

Each year, Sea Isle City hosts thousands of people for Polar Bear Plunge weekend. Basically, the main attraction of the Polar Plunge is an event where a few thousand people watch a few hundred crazy people jump into the ice cold Atlantic Ocean. But that’s all that goes on. The Polar Bear Plunge is a weekend long event, with plenty of partying and fun. Several of the local bars open up just for this weekend. It truly is a great time.

If you’re looking for a place to stay during the Polar Plunge weekend, look no further than The Colonnade Inn. Unlike most locations in Sea Isle, we’re open year round and ready for your visit. Plus, we offer jacuzzi tubs, morning coffee and pastries and even a big screen HDTV in our lounge.
