Friday Night, the weather was comfortable, clear – not too humid, at Clamfest, tons of people, you couldn’t walk 10 feet without running into people you knew. Carl Gentry was playing on the stage.
The VFW moved their beer garden back to the front of the building facing Clamfest this year, just like they used to have way back when. They didn’t have enough tables. Not sure if it was because Thursday Night was a wash due to the rain or because Highlands is closer than other places, we had lots of people show up.
Rides & games were lacking this year, only a few were available. Noticeably missing was the pirate ship.
If you lived downtown around the Captain Cove area, you were probably better venturing out to Clamfest than staying home as a Transformer blew and around 50 Highlands homes had no power last night. JCP&L didn’t state what the cause of the outage was.
Steamed Clams, Raw Clams, Lobster Roll, Fish Tacos. Chilangos has their famous Pork Wings for the non-Sea Food crowd. There were some new non-Highlands food vendors. I guess due to some of the restaurants *not* coming back, choices for local restaurant participation were slim pickins.
