Wildwood Pretzel sees his shadow – but there’s a twist!

    Last week, I alerted you the fact that the Wildwood Pretzel has been resurrected from the…oven and was going to once again head to the beach and tell us if he saw his shadow.

    He saw his shadow – but there’s a twist! For 2013, the prediction isn’t about the weather. It’s about whether or not Wildwood will have beach tags this summer. 

    Check out the latest video to see his prediction. Bonus: he takes a walk through a dog show that was held at the Wildwoods Convention Center last summer. So if you like pretzels with hands and feet, and dogs, it’s a must-see video. 

    Thanks to the Cape May County Herald for producing these videos. It’s been a rough couple of months down the shore, and things like this are perfect to lighten the mood, especially on bitter cold days.
