Well, here we are at the end of another great summer at the shore. This weekend is the last hurrah for many people. The town will almost seem like a ghost town when everyone leaves. But, come the weekend, the town becomes alive again. Next weekend, we'll be entertained by the Mummers. It's great fun to sit on the curb and watch the bands go by. It brings back many childhood memories of going to Broad Street in Philadelphia and watching the Mummers do their stuff. A few of my family members took part in the old days, and I have a cousin who still does every year. When my grandmother was alive, we'd watch the parade for awhile then eat of bowl of hot soup at Grandma's to warm up. Lots of happy memories.
Anyway, as I was saying, September is a fun time in the Wildwoods. The weekend of the 15th is Fireman's weekend with lots going on. The parade goes right by my office so we have a front row seat. The following weekend is Irish Weekend. The town really gets crazy that weekend. Everyone has a ball. Of course, since I work on the weekends, I just watch all the fun.
I'm getting ahead of myself, but I can't wait for the 50's show that Wildwood has been hosting for the last few years. It's in October and keeps getting better and better. It's a must see.
September is a great time to visit the Wildwoods. Stop by my office and say hi.
