“Senior week” is just around the corner, and new high school graduates will be headed to the Jersey Shore to celebrate.
One resort town mayor has a warning.
Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano says “senior week,” when teens hang out at the beach for a week after graduation, is not his favorite time of year.
“‘Senior week’ lasts about three weeks or more and I am not the biggest fan,” the mayor said. “We certainly want the kids to come down time and enjoy of all we have to offer. But I am not a big fan of all the underage drinking that goes on — and we will be keeping an eye out for that.”
Troiano has a warning for teens.
“I just tell these kids if you are coming down thinking that you are getting drunk every day, you are going to have somewhat of a rude awakening when we catch you,” he said.
He says Wildwood has stepped up police patrols to find underage kids trying to sneak into bars.
