Blueberry Festival, Crabbing Tourney, Italian Fest – Weekend Happenings
Hammonton will celebrate the fruit for which they are famous this Sunday when the Blueberry Capital of the World holds the 30th annual Red, White and Blueberry Festival.
The festival typically includes a variety of home-made dishes made with freshly-grown blueberries and, for that reason alone, this is one delicious festival worth attending!
The Blueberry Festival, Sunday from 10a-5p at Hammonton High School, also features crafts, vendors, rides, live music, an antique car show and a blueberry pie-eating contest. Good fun!
