As a lover of the season I hate to say it, but summer is running out of time. Sure, technically, summer lasts until late September, but the Jersey shore enters the shoulder season after Labor Day.

September's a beautiful time of year in South Jersey, but a little more laid back, and a little less exciting than July or August. The point is, you should do something fun while you still have a summer weekend to enjoy.  Here's what's fun around South Jersey on this last weekend in August.

Here are Lite Rock’s South Jersey Weekend Happenings, brought to you by Shore Medical Center, healthcare at its best!
