(Atlantic City, NJ, October 2, 2015) – Just because the calendar has flipped from summer to fall, it doesn’t mean the fun comes to a halt. From A-list entertainment to exciting events and great deals, Atlantic City gives you plenty of fun ways to do fall. For a complete list and details, check the calendar of events at http://www.atlanticcitynj.com/events/.
October starts off its first weekend with a sporting attitude, as the Atlantic City In-Water Power Boat Show sails into the Farley State Marina (http://www.acinwaterboatshow.com/) featuring an opportunity to climb aboard the hottest 2016 models as well as this year’s best sellers, and the Let if Fly Flag Football Qualifier on the beach between Steel Pier and the LandShark Bar & Grill (www.letitfly.org). Local Flag teams from up and down the coast will compete for a spot in the National Finals in Virginia Beach as part of the United States Beach Flag Football Association.
Speaking of football, it reigns supreme in the fall, and Atlantic City’s bars, lounges and clubs provide the perfect atmosphere to watch with friends. Many offer specialty drinks, buffet and drink specials and special room rates at the hotels.
