Weekend Happenings: Father’s Day, Skimmer Festival, Miss New Jersey & More
Father’s Day Weekend promises to be another beautiful weekend in South Jersey, jammed with fun things to do, shows to see, and places to go.
Or, you might be looking forward to a do-nothing-special-at-all weekend. A-sleep-late, curl-up-with a-book, eat-bagels-for-breakfast, then-play-cards-on-the-patio-in-your-pajamas-kind of weekend sounds pretty good to me!
Whichever way you go and whatever you choose to do this weekend, enjoy. But if you want to get out and have fun, you have plenty from which to choose.
