This family event is a longstanding tradition in Cape May County, and will offer fun activities for all ages. Children can participate in the popular Paint-a-Pumpkin craft, sand art, face painting and much more. The Sound Advice Lounge will feature a big-screen television and comfy furniture for football fans to enjoy the Saturday college games and, on Sunday, the 1 p.m. Eagles-Steelers game.
