Additional Information

Change is good, even for a town with a 200-year history. Today Absecon Mayor John Armstrong made an official proclamation that on the third Saturday of September, the town known as Absecon will officially change its name to Crabsecon for the day. This year’s name change will be commemorated with a community celebration on Saturday, September 15 at Turner Cover and Faunce Landing Waterfront Parks.

Crabsecon’s inaugural community celebration will encompass both waterfront parks. At Turner Cove from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, children’s activities will include a catch and release crab tournament, crab races, arts and crafts, face painting, magician, a bouncy house and more.  The Faunce Landing Waterfront Park will feature a day of fun, food trucks, a beer garden, wine bar, a cornhole tournament and live music on two stages. Music from Three Flights Up, Stealing Savannah, Cheers the Band, Billy Walton Band and Best of the Eagles will be performed at Faunce Landing from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Residents, friends, neighbors and visitors are invited to bring lawn chairs or a blanket and join the festivities.
