Seaside Heights is open for business

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It was a beautiful day to celebrate Memorial Day at the beach. In Seaside Heights, plenty of people were soaking up the sun and spending time with family. And the people we talked to say there is no place like New Jersey to unofficially kickoff summer

Korean War veteran Melvin Stein says New Jersey knows how to celebrate Memorial Day

“It’s a nice place to be ...the center of the country I believe in ...anything you want to see is here"

Parades in places like Fair Lawn honored those who died for our country.

“It’s just great to be thankful for everything they do for us so that we can sit here and enjoy the day" said one spectator.

Meredith Church says she thinks patriotic posts on social media sites help people to remember what the holiday is really about.

"We see a lot of the posts thanking everyone for our friends ad everyone who fought for us" she said.

Meanwhile beach goers in places like Seaside Heights enjoyed the sun and sand while wearing their Stars and Stripes in their own personal ways.

Boardwalk businesses like Dooners and Dzyner Eyes are optimistic about finally getting back to normal this season

“It's just nice to be open again” said one of their staff members. “To have money coming back in and people showing up... it's a good sign, we just need the renters and people to come down and know we are open again and enjoy the beach.”

The boardwalk shop owners said to spread the word. Seaside is up and running again so come down the shore. Especially after the winter we've had, people have no problem spending the holiday at the shore.
