One friend lives in Seaside Park, just a mile from the roller coaster that is in the ocean. She finally is in her home, and will visit me and share her pictures of the area. Apparently Ortley Beach, same barrier island, is far from being anywhere near OK.

Hope you're having a great time, Bobbi. It's nearly 6 months to go to this DisMeet.

I think I MAY just invite a friend to join me in the room. I am guessing if she would like to join the cookout she can, right?

Fine with me.

Will she want to join us on the Wishes cruise?

Opinions, please.


I think that MNSSHP is going to be on the 3rd October, 4th October (Friday) and 6th October (Sunday).

We kinda had plans for Raglan Road on the Friday night.


How busy would a Sunday night MNSSHP be compared to one on the Friday night?
Would I be better off considering hitting MNSSHP on the Thursday night?

And what would this mean for the Wishes pontoon?

I've been to 5 or 6 MNSSHP, and the only ones I would really avoid are the ones on or near Halloween. Look at the prices before you decide. My guess is that Thursday may be less crowded than Friday.

When you go to a party, decide if you are going for candy, shows, rides. The second parade is definitely less crowded than the first in our experience. Our children, grandchildren went all out for candy last year. They came back with pounds...but didn't see the fireworks, they weren't interested in them. DH & I got a reasonable amount of candy, we did see the second parade without lots of people in front of us.

I do not know if I will invite a friend, or if I do what she will be interested in doing..but I am getting close to making a decision.

Bobbi

Thank you. It's going to be a rough year for her, and it is not fully understood just how much she will recover. At one point she could not walk, but now she can!

Bobbi

Any idea if Sunday is gonna be less crowded? I'm thinking the locals might be more prepared to hit MNSSHP on a Friday?

This will be for DS to experience. DH and I got to experience it in 2010; so I suspect it will be more about rides and candy.

I'd like to stick with the Fireworks pontoon on the 3rd and dinner at RR on the 4th. But if the Sunday MNSSHP is going to be crazy, then we're going to have to re-jig the plans.

PIO, are you asking in other threads? I don't have enough experience to comment on crowds. I think that far from Halloween, Sunday would be OK too.

A winter storm is predicted to hit Dayton OH area tomorrow, so we quickly changed our plans. I'm meeting DH at the airport, and we will begin driving west this afternoon. I hope we make it home before midnight. This is the winter that keeps coming!

Based on locals only, ( school next day) I would think that Sunday would be best for you who knows about other people from all over the world but if a local is going to attend anything (Flower & Garden, Food & Wine, MVMCP, etc) odds are more likely for a Fri or Sat night

Thanks.


Bobbi - I haven't asked on any other threads. Just sorting it out in my mind and I think I had a feeling that Sunday was not a day normally targetted by locals. I can't do anything about crowds of tourists but that's not something I can control.

So, it looks like we might be hitting Blizzard Beach on Sunday.

Take care!

We have one more week of warm weather. Summer keeps going here too.
