Weekend Happenings: Christmas Crafts, Whiskey Fest, High School Playoff Football
Bleachers throughout South Jersey will be rocking this weekend! Eight teams from the Cape-Atlantic League will take to the field for the NJSIAA Football Playoffs – six on Friday night and two on Saturday. The playoffs are an exciting time and a wonderful tradition, enjoyed by students, parents, alumni and anyone who likes a good football game on a chilly November day. Our Lite Rock weather guy, Alan Kasper, says temps should actually be at or above the norm for mid-November.
Some of the highlights include Holy Spirit and Hammonton playing at home on Friday and St. Joseph on Saturday. Good luck to your favorite team!
