It’s hard to believe summer is coming to a close and we’re already preparing for another Labor Day on the Shore. Labor Day 2020 in Cape May is sure to be special, as it always is. Things do look a bit different this year, but that hasn’t stopped local establishments and entertainers from hosting lovely outdoor events through the rest of the summer. What’s coming up next?
