Come hungry to the Atlantic City Seafood Festival and Oasis Farm’s Apple Festival. Have old-fashioned fun at Belvidere Victorian Days and 1920s Country Fair & Harvest Festival. Even the family dog gets in on the action at the Fifth Annual Bark-a-Que. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, we hope you enjoy it with family and friends.
