Brick Township’s annual Summerfest series of concerts and fireworks displays will not take place in July, as Shorebeat reported earlier this week, but officials say they are hoping the events can be rescheduled in August.
“Usually our rain dates are in August, so maybe we can treat this as one big, horrendous rain storm,” said Mayor John Ducey.
Summerfest, which will be in its 25th year if it does occur in 2020, consists of four outdoor concerts and fireworks displays at Windward Beach Park. All four events were scheduled for Thursday night in July, but Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order concerning coronavirus currently limits outdoor events (other than political protests and religious ceremonies) to 250 people, then 500 people by July 2. Summerfest draws thousands of attendees on a given night.
The 2020 lineup is set to consist of:
- Week 1: Super TransAM
- Week 2: The Nerds
- Week 3: The Amish Outlaws
- Week 4: Tribute to the ’80s and ’90s
Fireworks displays follow each performance. It is free to attend the series and shuttle buses are normally provided.
