Beach curmudgeons beware: things are about to get wild this summer in Belmar. The New Jersey beach town has lifted its ban on sandcastle-building, Frisbee-tossing and ball-throwing.
Yes, all those things were previously against the law.
As Jen Howard reports for WHHY, new Mayor Matthew Doherty helped lift the ban after agreeing with residents that the anti-sandcastle law was a bit silly — especially given the town hosts an annual statewide castle-building contest.
But just like the big hole you spent all digging, sandcastles will have to be knocked down before its architects leave the beach.
