Held this year at Downtown Toms River's Huddy Park on Saturday, July 31st, the Toms River Seaport Society Summer Festival brought together vintage boats, classic cars, food vendors, nautical artisans and those plundering, piratical misfits - the Valhalla Pirates - for a celebration of the maritime port of Toms River and its past.
The Toms River Seaport Society thanks our gracious participants, volunteers, donors and guests for making 2021 a smashing success, including the Valhalla Pirates (valhallapirates.com), always ready and available to make your party, parade, festivals and more a great time; de Rouville's Boat Shop (derouvillesboatshop.com) for all your boat restoration, repair and storage needs; Toms River Artist Community (trac732.com) promoting local artists and fostering the improvement and further creation of their work; the Ocean County Parks System (ocparks.co.ocean.nj.us) and Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission (co.ocean.nj.us/OC/ch) for their continued support and promotion of Toms River Seaport Society community goals.
The festival would not have been possible without our community sponsors, the Rotary Club of Toms River (tomsriverrotary.com), and OceanFirst Bank (oceanfirst.com).
The Seaport Society further thanks ReClam the Bay (reclamthebay.org), who grow and maintain millions of baby clams and oysters in the Barnegat Bay Watershed and provide regional education initiatives; Scale Ship Modelers of North America (ssmana.org), who encourage all types of model boating in electric, sail, and steam power as well as the building of plastic and wooden static models; the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 16-05 (a0531605.uscgaux.info), an all volunteer arm of the United States Coast Guard serving the boating public on the Jersey Shore; the Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey (vintageautomuseum.org), who educates and entertains families and individuals about preserving, sharing and taking pride in our shared automotive heritage; our food vendors Latin Bites (latinbitesnj.com) and Kona Ice (kona-ice.com) and our myriad boat owners and merchandise vendors.
