Everyone enjoys the excitement of a summer carnival. It brings out the

child in all of us. Since 1975, St. Francis of Assisi Parish has been hosting the Festival of the Sea Carnival, annually.

The Festival of the Sea begins Wednesday, August 6, and continues through Sunday, August 10.

The carnival will be open nightly (weather permitting) from 6:00 to 10:00 pm.

The Festival of the Sea came together 39 years ago as a celebration of the community. The Festival of the Sea is held on the St. Francis Parish & Center parking lot located at 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach, NJ. Admission is FREE!

Sr. Patricia Klemm, expressed her excitement when asked about the annual summer classic: “We hope the community will spend some time with us again this year. The Festival of the Sea is a major fundraiser for the work of the Parish. It is also a great opportunity to spend some time with your neighbors and to meet new folks.

Pay one price (P.O.P) and ride all the rides you want - all night long. The Pay One Price ride bracelets cost only $25 Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. On Friday, August 8 the POP bracelet is ONLY $20 – a $5.00 saving. POP bracelets are a great savings to those who will be vacationing on LBI for the week.

There will be delicious carnival food favorites, pizza, seafood, ice cream and much more.

Maybe you’ll win a souvenir at one of the many game booths.

You can also take a chance on a nightly 50/50. Drawings will be every hour. There will also be a Super Progressive 50/50. Win and you’ll take half the purse. Tickets for the Super Progressive 50/50 are on sale now through August 10 ($2.00 for one ticket and $10.00 for a book of six) at the Front Desk of the Community Center. Winner will be chosen on the last night of the festival and does not need to be present to win.
