Despite Friday's constant threat of showers, it didn’t stop the crowds from swarming- and they were enthusiastic as ever about seeing their favorite radio station! 


Among the many events that had been scheduled for the weekend, Westfield's Holy Trinity Greek Festival was one the first to kick off the weekend

There were tons of cultural music and dancing, and unique traditional clothes, bags, jewelry, great family games, and of course superior Greek Cuisine!

Most importantly the Jersey Prize Team was there playing Jersey’s Favorite Hits and ready to give out awesome prizes, including Hurricane Harbor and local baseball tickets.  Games like "Name that Tune" and hula-hoop contests definitely created a positive, upbeat atmosphere, where the crowd was anxious to compete!

By the end of the day, there’s no doubt that the Jersey Prize Team was feeling full and cultured!


Sunday was the 'Walk for Empowerment' and what a beautiful day it was to be down the shore on the


Great Lawn in Long Branch! All of the walk’s proceeds went toward Spina Bifida research.

There were teams of participants, equipped with their own team t-shirts, each sponsoring a Spina Bifida patient; judging by that, the cause was well underway!

The atmosphere created by the hopeful participants was most contagious, giving the Jersey Prize Team all the more reason to give away Lakewood Blueclaws tickets to hype up the crowd for the walk that was to come!

It was a great weekend to be out and about in the Great Garden State! To see some photos of the other events we went to this weekend click here!
