Summer is officially here and Brick Township and Ocean County are ready for the tradition that is Summerfest.

This event has become so popular over the years that tens of thousands will pack Windward Beach Park for live music and entertainment.

While it's awesome that this event has become so huge, it makes parking a bit of a nightmare.

Now, let me be clear. I'm not blaming anyone. There are just a lot of people.

With a lineup like this year, you can't blame anyone for wanting to pack up the car and take in a concert, enjoy the car show or watch the drive-in movie.

JUNE 30th - SUPER TRANS-AM

This poor band got poured on week after week last year. This summer they are first up on the stage with their ultimate '70s concert experience.

JULY 7th - STIFFLER'S MOM

Based on the band's name, Stiffler's Mom is all about the music of the '90s. From pop to grunge to hip-hop, you'll hear all of the hits.

JULY 14th - THE BENJAMINS

The Benjamins have been entertaining the Jersey Shore and beyond for decades with covers of many genres of music.

JULY 21st - JESSIE'S GIRL

The totally awesome '80s!

There will be a car show at Windward Beach on August 4th and a drive-in movie on August 12th featuring Jungle Cruise.

Did you know that there is shuttle transportation for Summerfest shows? It sure beats sitting on Princeton Avenue forever.

Pick up and drop off for Summerfest are at the following locations:

  • Drum Point Elementary School
  • Brick Township High School
  • Veterans Memorial Middle School
  • Fellowship Chapel parking area on Duchess Lane

Shuttle buses begin trips to the park at 5 p.m. and return trips from Windward begin at 8 p.m.

Anyone under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We'll see you out there!
