Beachgoers pack Sandy Hook to capacity

People packed Sandy Hook's beaches and parks to capacity Sunday amid beautiful weather.



The park was already at capacity by 11 a.m. It had to be shut down for a few hours until people left.



Heavy crowds also caused traffic to back up along Route 36 South.



The crowds were a benefit to neighboring Sea Bright, which often sees overflow from Sandy Hook.



The beach at Sandy Hook also closed Saturday after filling to capacity.
