Sea Isle City Beach Rentals
The South Jersey Shore might be best known for summer fireworks spectaculars and strolls along the boardwalk, but there is also plenty to do beyond the summer season. The fall is full of festivals and activities that draw people back to the beach towns of New Jersey, like Sea Isle City. One great example is the Sea Isle City Oktoberfest. This nod to German culture is a family-friendly festival full of entertainment, food, crafts, and more. If you're looking for a fun reason to escape back to the shore, check out the Sea Isle City Oktoberfest.
In 2012, the Sea Isle City Oktoberfest is scheduled for October 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This annual event is sponsored by the Sea Isle City Chamber of Commerce and features a wide range of entertainment. Family activities include a free moon bounce, face painter, temporary tattoo artist, and huge obstacle course. Fun seasonal activities include a pumpkin painting station and free hay rides on the beach. There will also be live entertainment, including music. In past years music has been performed by the Philadelphia German Brass Band .
The 2012 Festival
What to ExpectWhile other Oktoberfest events are centered mostly on German-style beer and food, the Sea Isle City Oktoberfest is a seasonal celebration. One of the most highly anticipated events is the Annual Pie Baking Contest . The general public is invited to participate in this contest by submitting any type of pie. Bakers can get creative and submit everything from classic apple pies to cream-filled pies to chocolate pies. No restaurants or professional kitchens are allowed to submit making this a real competition for home cooks. Entry forms for the pie contest can be found online.
The German Side of the FestivalThis seasonal celebration offers the chance to paint pumpkins and go for a hay ride, but there's also a distinct German element to it as well. Craft and merchandise vendors bring together a fun collection of German items. Local eateries and bars will offer drinks and snacks inspired by German fare. Unlike other Oktoberfest celebrations that focus more on nightlife than family fun, this event is a daytime celebration of German culture. If you're looking to party, you might want to consider a different Oktoberfest event.

Planning a Trip to Sea IsleDuring the summer it can be difficult to secure the perfect vacation rental in Sea Isle.

Temperatures might be a little brisk, but this will allow your family to enjoy the vacation rental even more. Instead of running out the door the first thing in the morning for a day on the beach, you can enjoy a leisurely start to the day with a long breakfast. The South Jersey Shore is at its most relaxing outside of the summer months; why not give it a try during the Sea Isle Oktoberfest?
