Adventure in the Park Cancelled Due to Hurricane
It’s been a rough season for music festivals at the Jersey Shore. First, Electric Adventure in Atlantic City was cancelled due to pushback from the community, and now Adventure in the Park, scheduled to take place in Lakewood, NJ, was cancelled due to impending Hurricane Matthew.
Adventure in the Park was supposed to take place this Columbus Day weekend, October 8th and 9th, and featured a solid lineup including Lil Wayne, Yellow Claw, Ookay, Alison Wonderland, Zomboy and more. South Jersey residents who were angry at the abrupt cancellation of Electric Adventure were probably gearing up extra hard for Adventure in the Park, but alas, it was not meant to me.
The festival announced:
Due to public safety concerns, the township of Lakewood New Jersey has officially cancelled Adventure in the Park 2016 in result of the uncertainty of Hurricane Matthew’s impact on the Jersey Shore this Friday October 7th through Sunday October 9th. We have spoken with town officials and it is in the communities best interest to prepare for what is approaching, due to previous historic hurricanes which have impacted the surrounding areas. Please be aware that this is solely for the safety of all adventurers and artists. We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this has caused anyone, and we are working diligently to make next years festival a much greater experience!
We hope that the Jersey Shore and surrounding areas remain unharmed during the hurricane, and of course, we hope New Jersey has better festival luck next summer.
