BRADLEY BEACH - More than 60,000 people crowded the Jersey Shore for the eighth annual Bradley Beach LobsterFest.

The event featured more than 150 craft and specialty vendors, as well as face painters, a water slide and rides.

Visitors from throughout the tri-state area packed the entire mile-long beachfront promenade, with many making their first trip to Bradley Beach.

"I think it's great publicity for Bradley Beach," said Zach Miller, of Ocean Township. "I think it's really great to get people down here."
