This year’s Cocktail Kickoff is more special than usual — we’re celebrating our new, wider beaches, replenished over the winter by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ beach replenishment project. Even more room to spread out this summer!

Tickets are available in advance at Manasquan Lighting, The Coast Star, The Corner Bagelry, and Jaspan Hardware. They can also be purchased from any member of the tourism commission.

We hope to see you at Leggett’s on Tuesday! Until then, here are some recent photos of our beautiful beach and everyone’s favorite inlet.
