Stronger than the Storm: Weekend Recap

Stronger than the Storm: Weekend Recap

Even during a weekend marred by heavy rain and thunderstorms throughout the state, the #GardenState never struggles to keep spirits high. Here’s what went down this weekend in #HipNJ’s summer weekend recap.

Friday, July 29th

The 2016 PGA Championship, a major tournament in professional golf, held its second round on Friday at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield Township. Despite several round delays caused by the inclement weather, American Jimmy Walker managed to come out on top at the end of the weekend long tournament.

It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you’re into – there’s always something going on in #NJ tailored exactly to your liking! This was made evident Friday night as traditional pop and jazz singer Tony Bennett took the stage at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City. The legendary musician celebrates his 90th birthday this coming week and is still going at it – now THAT’s hip.

Saturday, July 30th

The 34th Annual QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning held its second of two days at Solberg Airport in Readington on Saturday. The weekend-long festival had an unfortunate early closing on Sunday, but Friday and Saturday were filled with plenty of family entertainment from amusement park rides to magic shows. Oh, and Hot Air Balloon rides were available at specific times of day, with up to 100 ascending at once.

No place I’d rather be at 6:30am

Country music superstar and heartthrob Luke Bryan managed to overcome the rain and took over the stage at BB&T Pavilion in Camden on the second of two nights of his Kill the Lights Tour. Opening acts included Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.

Last night was amazing ?? #lukebryan #dustinlynch #littlebigtown #killthelightstour2016 #lukeforpresident ?

Sunday, July 31st

The Haskell Invitational, an American Grade 1 race for thoroughbred horses, took place at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport. The $1 million race drew a crowd of nearly 30,000, all there to witness the intense showdown between Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist and Preakness Stakes winner Exaggerator. In the end, Exaggerator came out on top.

The 2016 Teen Choice Awards closed out the weekend, and July, Sunday night on the west coast. Among those honored with awards were Jersey-natives Nick Jonas and the late Christina Grimmie. Charlie Puth, who originates from Rumson, also received several nominations and performed his latest single We Don’t Talk Anymore with Selena Gomez.
