First fair of 2018! I went over to the Middlesex Fire Dept Fair in Middlesex, NJ on Saturday, April 28th. I had some other plans later on, so I went a little earlier at around 5pm. It ended up raining later on, so going earlier actually worked out. The rides were brought in by Campy’s Blue Star Amusements and the fair had…
On Sunday, March 18th, I took a trip down to Wildwood and shore points northward for a little off-season sightseeing. I arrived in Wildwood at about 12:30pm and parked near Sportland Pier. Looks like there’s some construction going on at the old Seaport Village location. A quick search says that it’s going to be Seaport Pier, a “year-round multi-purpose venue for regional and tourist guests of North Wildwood, NJ” according to the website. Looks like it’ll have some restaurants, bars, a music venue, and a swim club.
I took a little day trip to New York City on Sunday, December 17th to take in the holiday sights, something I like to do every year. I planned out a pretty long walk to hit several locations, starting downtown in the Financial District, hopping on the subway to Greenwich Village and waking all the way to Midtown. It was quite the walk, but I got to see a lot! Below are some photos from the trip. Each photo has a location or description when you open it. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
I headed over to Six Flags Great Adventure on Sunday, November 26th. The park was in its second weekend of Holiday in the Park festivities. I heard that the day before was pretty crowded since it was the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with temperatures in the mid 50s. Sunday, on the other hand, was cold with just a bit of a breeze.
I’ve been pretty busy lately; on the website front I’ve been moving my sites to a new web host and configuring things to work as smoothly as possible. There shouldn’t be much downtime, but if there is then you know I screwed something up. Anyway, I’ve been to Great Adventure’s Fright Fest twice this Fall: once on September 22nd, the second weekend of Fright Fest, and October 20th. I may eek out one more trip before the Halloween festivities wrap up. I’m surprised that they’ll be open on Monday and Tuesday, October 30th and 31st, but I doubt I’ll be making it on those days…too bad, the coasters will probably be all “walk ons” those days.
