Encore ‘New Jersey Jeep Invasion’ to Debut in Ocean City this Fall
Hundreds of Jeep owners will roam between 6th and 14th street for a massive nighttime cruise you don’t want to miss, Oct. 13
When the New Jersey Jeep Invasion debuted back in 2013, it did so with a solid 200 participants. But the event proved so popular that the next year’s attendance doubled to 400. Event organizers knew that they wouldn’t be able to fit many more Jeeps into the small confines of Ocean City, New Jersey, in 2015. So, they moved the event to nearby Wildwood, which offered up plenty of space and since then, the event has grown to more than 1,500 participants. As a bonus this year’s summer Wildwood event, Jeep Invasion is having a second coming; back to where it all began.
In addition to the Wildwood event, New Jersey Jeep Invasion is hosting a special fall event at Ocean City on October 13. And while organizers haven’t yet released any specific details, you can bet it’ll be something special. Taking place right on the boardwalk, past events have featured plenty of cruising, food, and live entertainment. A night-time cruise usually serves as the signature event, cramming hundreds of Jeeps between 6th and 14th streets.
You can also expect a show and shine and subsequent trophies awarded to the best of the best. But perhaps the best thing about the NJ Jeep Invasion, besides the load of fun it is, are the charities it benefits. Over the years, the event has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Make a Wish Foundation and collected just as much food for Move for Hunger.
If all of this sounds like a can’t miss good time, that’s because it is. But since Ocean City is lacking tons of space, the event is capped to only 500 participants. Registration opens June 18, so don’t miss it. Head over here to register, and check back as more information is released as we get closer to the event.
