Tour Ocean Grove’s tent colony July 30

The Historical Society of Ocean Grove will sponsor a Tent Colony Tour 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 30, rain or shine. Tickets are $20 to visit 10 tents. Participants will choose 10 tents from a list of participating tents.

At one time, more than 700 tents were on the campgrounds. Today, only 114 tents remain. The tents are rented and occupied from May 15 to Sept. 15. Each tent is decorated and furnished by the tenters.

Proceeds from the tour will go to the Sandy Together Fund. Tickets may be purchased at the Historical Society’s Museum at 50 Pitman Ave. in advance or on the day of the tour. Call 732-774-1869 for more information.
