ARTS & CRAFTS FESTIVAL:  The 54th Annual Stone Harbor Arts & Crafts Festival takes place this weekend, August 6th & 7th.  More than 200 artisans from a dozen states will display their work at the 80th Street Recreation Fields.  The show runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, and 9am to 4pm Sunday.  Complimentary shuttle service will run from a half-hour before the show until a half-hour after on each day to ease traffic and parking.  Designated pickup locations include 60th Street & Dune Drive, 81st Street & the bay, 94th Street & Second Avenue, 95th Street & Second Avenue, 96th Street & First Avenue, 98th Street & Second Avenue, and 123rd Street & Second Avenue.
A FEDERALLY FUNDED BEACH REPLENISHMENT project is out for bids, according to Avalon Business Administrator Scott Wahl, who recently reported to Avalon Council.  The project will benefit both Avalon and Stone Harbor, with a hoped for October 1st start.  Stay tuned for more details!

A hot, humid summer afternoon gives way to a peaceful evening, as the last crescent of the sun slips below the horizon.
“YOUR MAJESTY, THERE IS NO SECOND.”  That report was allegedly delivered to the Queen of England in 1851, as the original yacht “America” crossed the finish line, with her competitors still not even in sight.  After being awarded a silver cup for her victory, the tradition of the “America’s Cup” sailing competition was born.  A replica of the original “America,” said to be the fastest sailing yacht built in her time, will sail into Cape May Harbor later this month, and dock at South Jersey Marina August 30th & 31st.  Public tours of the yacht will be available, along with afternoon sails.  For more information or tickets, visit http://nextlevelsailing.com/tour/
NEW AT THE ZOO!  The Cape May County Zoo—recognized as one of the top zoos in the country—has some new improvements to make it even better.  For example, the zoo’s snow leopards received a new habitat over the winter, and an Asian Amur leopard has received a special cage.  For  adventurous souls, try the new Tree to Tree Adventure Park that recently opened, featuring four adventure courses and a zipline course (visit http://treetotreecapemay.com/ for info & tickets.)
