Wildwood this Memorial Day Weekend

If you’re headed to the shore this weekend, there’s a lot happening in Wildwood. Known for its free beaches, the Wildwoods will be open for walking, running, fishing and swimming—and here’s how you can stay safe at the beach during the pandemic.

“After a long winter, we are looking forward to greeting visitors back to the Wildwoods to kick off the summer season and Memorial Day Weekend,” said Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority Executive Director/CFO John Siciliano.

The Boardwalk’s food and beverage establishments will be observing social distancing guidelines by offering curbside pick-up, take-out and delivery options. (So you can treat your family to frozen custards this weekend.)

In addition, Wildwood’s iconic tram car service will resume on Tuesday, May 26 and will meet social distancing guidelines by installing plexiglass dividers and plastic shields between seating areas, plus sanitizing every half-hour. A Tram Car App is also being developed to allow for cashless payments.

“The Wildwoods Sightseer Tram Cars, and the passengers riding them, will be a welcomed sight and sound on our Boardwalk this summer, especially after a long dormant winter and spring,” says Siciliano. “This is yet another exciting step toward the opening of a fun-filled summer season in the Wildwoods.”

On Saturday, May 23, the Downtown Wildwood Farmers Market will begin its seventh season at Byrne Plaza. The market will be open every Saturday from 8 am-12:30 pm until Labor Day weekend, rain or shine. Your family can grab fresh fruits and veggies, baked goods, nuts, honey, tea, meat, cheeses, handmade goods and more.

On Monday, May 25, Wildwood’s Memorial Day Ceremony will take place virtually. The ceremony will be live streamed on Facebook on the American Legion Post 184 and Wildwood 365 Facebook pages.

For New Jerseyeans, it’s a rite of passage to head down the shore Memorial Day Weekend for the unofficial start of summer. Will you be making the trek? Let us know in the comments below.
