The six beach patrols that cover Long Beach Island began an awesome new tradition this July 4th!

Beginning in Holgate and wrapping up in Barnegat Light, lifeguards from each municipality carried the Stars & Stripes up the entire length of Long Beach Island! The flag was passed along all 18 miles of shoreline.

The Long Beach Township Beach Patrol hopes this will be the start of a yearly tradition. Big thanks to those to keep our beaches safe all summer long!
