6 Fun Things to do in Cape May this October

Happy Autumn in Cape May!  There are lots of festivals and fun things to do here at the Jersey Shore - a little something for everyone.  We have a sampling of October events listed here and be sure to check the Jersey Cape Realty Event Calendar for more.

Cape May's Victorian Weekend runs from October 5 - 9.  This is an extended weekend chock full of activities centered around Cape May's history as America's first seaside resort.  There are walking tours by Victorian homes, an evening of Victorian parlor games, a chocolate lover's feast, a murder mystery show, an underground railroad tour, a wine tour, and new this year - a burlesque show (yikes!).  Check out the event listings here.

If you have never bean (Oops! We mean been), you have to come out to West Cape May's Lima Bean Festival on Saturday, October 7, from 9 am to 5 pm, at Wilbraham Park, Myrtle Avenue, West Cape May.  Once known as the country's lima bean capital, West Cape May was one of the largest producers of lima beans in the states.  Come celebrate this yummy legume.  You will find lima bean soup, salsa, chili, even lima bean ice cream and cookies!!  Make sure to get your official 2018 Lima Bean Festival shirt.

It wouldn't be fall without the Harvest Festival Crafts and Collectibles Show at Cape May Convention Hall on Saturday, October 14, from 9 am to 4 pm.  Crafters and collectors from throughout the region will be displaying and selling their wares.  This is a great time to get a head start on your holiday shopping and take something memorable home from Cape May.

Don't miss Cape May's Theater Week running from October 9 - 15.  Each venue has a different show and schedule so you will have a chance to see a number of good shows during the week.  Elaine's Dinner Theater is showcasing "Young Dracula".  East Lynne Theater Company is hosting "A Year in the Trenches".  Cape May Stage features "Outside Mullingar".

Are you a lighthouse buff?  Here's a chance to see 11 land-based lighthouses, including our Cape May Lighthouse, during the Lighthouse Challenge of NJ 2017, on October 21 and 22.  Rain or shine, this two-day event will take you from Sandy Hook to Cape May.  Enter the challenge and compete to visit all 11 stops during the weekend.  You choose where to start and end.  Those who complete the challenge will be entered into a drawing for a basket worth $1000 in prizes.

Cape May's Halloween parade is on October 22.  Put on your funniest or scariest costume and head down to the Washington Street Mall at noon for trick-or-treat.  Parade registration starts at 1:30 pm, with costume judging at 2 pm, and the parade at 3 pm.  Pre-register or sign up the day of the parade.  The parade starts at Perry Street and Carpenter Lane, then winds behind the mall, down Washington Street and ends at the Physick Estate.

Even though the temperature may be a little cooler and we're doing autumn events, the Cape May real estate market hasn't cooled a bit!  We are busy at Jersey Cape Realty listing and selling Cape May homes, along with booking 2018 vacation rentals. If you are thinking of listing for sale, ask one of our experienced agents to do a complimentary market analysis on your home.  Or, maybe you are thinking of buying. It's a great time to talk with our agents about the many possibilities in today's market.  If you are a landlord and not listed with us yet, talk with our dedicated, full time vacation rental team and then complete the rental listing forms easily online.  No matter the question, stop in and see us at 739 Washington Street, Cape May, or give us a call, 609-884-5800.
