Life has gotten back to normal for the most part, and we are looking forward to an amazing summer season at the Jersey Shore.

Yes, we're talking about the beach, the restaurants, and strolls on the boardwalk, but there's so much more.

There are so many activities that make Jersey Shore summers special.

For example, there are movies on the beach.

Belmar, Pt. Pleasant Beach and Seaside Heights are bringing back the annual movie night on the beach.

Lavallette is even doing movies on the bay.

Ever since COVID put a damper on our fun in the sun, I would always get asked the same question while broadcasting from the New Jersey Natural Gas Asbury Park Boardwalk Studios.

What happened to the bonfires?

Friday night Asbury Park bonfires had been a summer staple in Asbury Park forever, but they stopped the season of the pandemic for obvious reasons.

Well, great news. The bonfires are back, and they are going weekly right through the end of September. Get your blankets and beach chairs ready.

Where are the Asbury Park bonfires?

Here's the 2023 schedule so you can start planning.

Please check Asbury Park's socials before going. Bonfires are weather-permitting and may be canceled due to high winds.
