August at the Jersey Cape is ready for good times
With just over a month to go before kids get back to school, the Jersey Cape is still in full summer mode and has calendar packed with events and entertainment.
FOR THE KIDS: It seems every little kid wants to be a pirate, or a princess and now they can act out their dream at the Princess & Pirates Luncheon in Cape May on August 14th. Young buccaneers and little maidens are invited to the Carriage House at the Physick Estate for a pirate- and princess-themed luncheon. Reserve your spot soon as space is limited. Folks can also get in on magical fun at the "Skullduggery, A Magical Pirate Adventure" produced by Cape May Stage on August 17th. If you've ever wanted to be a magician, here's your chance: there'll be an 11 am workshop for magicians aged 6 to 96, followed by a mystifying performance at 6:30 pm.
