“Oh, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We’ve already got the stars.” Bette Davis
It’s October in the seaside town of Wildwood, NJ, and our fall-loving cast has arrived for a ton of off-season fun. They soon discover A Star is Born every time they step onto our starry shores, where The Happy Prince, and equally-happy costars, are currently enjoying their Hollywood break. Before happily becoming the First Man to walk on the moon, our favorite astronaut is having a blast at the Morey’s Piers Oktoberfest, temporarily trading in moon walks for a bit of Morey’s Piers merriment.
As the air takes on a decidedly-chillier feel, A Bonfire on the Beach warms up even the coldest characters, who all agree a good day at the beach beats the Bad Times at the El Royale. Always a guaranteed-good time, The Downtown Wildwood Fall Farmer’s Market keeps our beauties healthy while participating in the Wildwoods Boardwalk 5K Pumpkin Run keeps them fit and camera ready. Apart from those glaring cameras, the cast of Venom discover an uplifting ocean view can make even the most bitter among us more beautiful.
Beautiful in his own odd way, and clearly into all things nostalgic, Johnny English Strikes Again at the Fabulous ‘50s & Beyond 15th Anniversary Celebration, briefly coming out of retirement to enjoy the party sure to beat your typical Hollywood bash.
After a meet-and-greet with our locals, our latest Wildwood lovers learn Serenity abounds seaside (if not cinematically) this sweet season, reminding our out-of-towners that The Hate You Give is nowhere to be found in our generous, lovable town.
Loving every minute of their fall break, and after taking in Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, a Beautiful Boy and his beautiful friends are ready for a fun visit to the Downtown Wildwood Halloween Movie & Treats while the “somewhat” older kids, having endured a scary showing of the latest Halloween, find a bit of family-friendly (non-horror like) respite at the Wildwood Halloween Spooktacular.
As the spectacular month rolls on, our October characters find inspiration along the coast, uttering Can You Ever Forgive Me? to everyone (and there are a lot of “everyones”) they ever upstaged, knowing that they can never outshine the brilliant stars hovering protectively over those of us, fortunate enough to have found our place right here in beautiful Wildwood, NJ…
