The 'Pour Into Summer Wine Festival' takes place over two days, Saturday May 22nd and Sunday, May 23rd, outdoors at beautiful Byrne Plaza, according to wildwood365 on Instagram. It's being billed as 'NJ's socially distanced wine festival'.

Now, Memorial Day Weekend isn't until the following week, and the summer season doesn't technically arrive until June 20th, but we admire Wildwood's enthusiasm! And, what wine fan doesn't love the chance to spend the day sampling some new, local varietals, especially along the Jersey shore coast. Jersey wineries usually have some delicious seasonal wines, too.

Several New Jersey wineries will reportedly be participating, and there will also be food trucks, crafters, and live music. Sounds like a perfect day to us!

The 'Pour Into Summer Wine Festival' takes place from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sat. May 22nd and Sun. May 23rd. Tickets are $25 in advance and include wine glass and sampling. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE. Must be 21 to purchase a ticket and to participate in the wine sampling.

Byrne Plaza is located at 3400 Pacific Avenue in Wildwood.

So far, weather looks favorable with hi temps in the upper 70's Saturday and mid 80's on Sunday! Enjoy and remember to drink responsibly. CALL A FRIEND OR RIDE SHARE IF YOU NEED A SAFE RIDE HOME!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
