The least raucous event of the year is returning to Ocean City.
The annual Quiet Festival will be held Nov. 4 and 5, offering calm and quiet family activities, according to the city.
Several activities will be held at the city's public library, arts center, the Ocean City Historical Museum, the Ocean City Aquatic and Fitness Center and the Howard S. Stainton Senior Center.
Events include a checkers tournament, crossword puzzle competition, "Royalty Story Time" with Miss Ocean City, Junior Miss Ocean City and Little Miss Ocean City, yoga and a quiet pet and stuffed animal competition. Professional mime Bill Bowers will perform and lead a workshop on the art of miming.
All of the events are free to the public. A full schedule is available at ocnj.us/quietfestival.
