Brick Summerfest Begins Tonight

Fireworks displays will take place around the Shore area earlier, however

Brick's annual Summerfest series of entertaining, family-friendly events will kick off this week at Windward Beach Park.

The July 5 event will feature "Separate Ways: The Ultimate Journey Show," a tribute to the famed band.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m., followed by a fireworks display at 9 p.m. The food court will open at 5 p.m., alongside DJs.

As usual, shuttle buses will run between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. from Brick Township High School, Drum Point Elementary School and Midstreams Elementary School. Return buses will begin running at 9 p.m.

Good luck getting in or out or even finding a parking place... The shuttles are a great way to get there.

You can park at the lot until it is filled up; we recommend people use shuttle buses. The buses are available at Midstreams School, Drum Point School and Brick Township High School. Buses begin at 5pm. Last trip to Windward at 8pm. Return trips begin at 9pm.

Also, the opening band is Outside the Box, a local band.

There is a concert at Brick Beach III on Wednesday July 18 at 7pm featuring Gerard Esposito.

Summerfest certainly isn't what it used to be. Remember when 4-5 REAL well known acts came here....Now it's movies for the kids and local bands....Oh for the good old days. Summerfest has been run into the ground!!!

I can (and will) put in a suggestion to the company to add such a function. Thanks!

Those guys are honestly worth checking out. Great band.
Mark Haviland July 03, 2012 at 04:32 PM
Yes, I saw Outside the Box open for Nicole Atkins at a fundraiser at the Stone Pony. An excellent area band...

No shutte buses for the other side of town? There used to be one leaving Brick Memorial HS. Typical.
TownshipofBrick July 03, 2012 at 07:55 PM
The shuttle bus locations were scaled back years ago. Now there is one for the north side of town (Midstreams) one for the South (Drum Point) and a central location (BTHS).

More than worth the treck to Windward. Outside the Box is a great group. They are a regular now for the summer at the Stone Pony.

Isn't there a shuttle from Brick Memorial Middle School anymore?
Reality July 04, 2012 at 12:38 PM
As a Brick taxpayer, I am thrilled that "Summerfest certainly isn't what it used to be." I cannot afford for MY taxes to foot the bill for so many non-residents to be entertained. And what's the problem with LOCAL bands and movies for the KIDS? Seems to me there is now something for most Brick TAXPAYERS at little to no cost to them.

Like everything else in this town...........thanks to Stevie I wonder

Why always on a Thursday? Are we the only people who have to get up early for work? And who ever heard of Fourth of July fireworks on The Fifth of July?
MauiJim July 05, 2012 at 02:59 PM
Can you bring beach chairs on the shuttle bus?
TownshipofBrick July 05, 2012 at 03:17 PM
You can bring beach chairs on the bus. KC, SummerFest has been Thursdays since day 1 in 1995.

I will be at Summerfest.... sitting on a park bench

Eying little girls with bad intent.
Joseph Woolston Brick July 06, 2012 at 05:06 AM
Reality, Summerfest is paid for by corporate sponsors and the vendors renting space, not your taxes. Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Reality July 06, 2012 at 11:35 AM
Joe - Please reread my posting, paying close attention to the FIRST sentence. Summerfest may now be FREE to BRICK taxpayers. If you believe the way Summerfest was operated previously did not cost the Brick taxpayer, then you are naive. And, once again, I think it's great that there is now something for everyone. In addition, it's an added bonus that the non-profits can now operate a stand if they so choose.

They use to do it every friday.. then every other friday.... my daughter lives right accross the river, it was always a job trying to put little ones to sleep during the summer, JUST as they where falling asleep the fireworks would go off...
bricknjmom July 06, 2012 at 01:51 PM
ewhhhh perv
Tarkus July 06, 2012 at 02:53 PM
@bricknjmom, it's from the song "Aqualung" you moron.

Buses are gone from north side due to our mayor living on the other side of town. Herbertsville only received it fair share when Scarpelli was mayor. Say what you want about him. He's far better than what we have today.
