In Another Time> Wildwoods will have plenty to celebrate in 2014

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

It soon will be time for celebrating history again in Cape May County, once the cold winds go far out to sea, the snow retreats to Alaska and the snowbirds return from Florida.

The hardy who have stayed here to shiver in their timbers have actually started the celebrations of various sorts early, regardless of the weather.
