Food, music, and even ghosts are the main attractions at some of this weekend's jammin' July festivals. Load up on bacon at TRUCKerton with a Side of Bacon, or, if you're feeling more like fruit, indulge in fresh-picked berries at Terhune Orchards' Blueberry Bash.

Great music is on the scene at Fanwood Summer FanJam, Palmer Square Summer Stage, and Fort Lee Music and Movies Under the Stars. And if you're up for a supernatural experience, check out Cold Spring Village's Paranormal Weekend, or enjoy a performance of Greetings from Mars.

Weekend fun down the Shore includes the Wildwood Crest Sand Sculpting Festival and Monmouth Park's Family Fun Days.
