SOMERS POINT, N.J. — This Saturday, Somers Point will be hosting the 42nd annual Good Old Day Festival to say farewell to summer.

The festival will have antique cars on display, children’s entertainment including carnival games, inflatables, a magician, pony rides, karate demonstrations, as well as K-9 demonstrations, over 20 vendors and community groups, food, and treats including hot dogs and hamburgers fresh from the grill.
