Crest to host three live music shows, Sand Sculpting Festival during week of July 4th


WILDWOOD CREST – The Borough of Wildwood Crest will be celebrating the week of the Independence Day holiday in a big way.

The Crest will host three live music shows and its sixth annual Sand Sculpting Festival over the span of four days from Wednesday, July 4, through Saturday, July 7.
