Asbury Park Bear Invasion 2022
Here come the bears, cubs, lovers, admirers and everyone between for the annual Bear Invasion of Asbury Park.
Are you ready for some bear loving fun at Asbury Park beach? Besides the beach and bars (Club Paradise, Georgie’s, Anchors Bend, Biergarten just to name a few) fun, Daddy Ersin will present two signature parties, RAM and Plunge Pool Party. So travel on down to the Jersey Shore for a good ole bear loving time.
There will be muscle bears on the beach, polar Bears in the pool, cubs on Cookman Ave. otters from out of town, chasers, admirers, friends and even the occasional Goldilocks or two.
- Highlights include the annual Plunge P0ol party at the Paradise Beach Club on the Saturday of the event, from 12pm to 6pm followed by the RAM Party at Paradise 101 Club from 10pm until closing. Other events are yet to be scheduled but will include beach days, bar crawls and dinners.
- Paradise Asbury Park is located in the famous Empress hotel and is at the heart of the Asbury Gay Scene. It is New Jersey’s Ultimate Club complex with 2 dance rooms, martini lounge, hotel, heated pool, 2 tiki bars and a state of the art sound & visual system.
- Asbury Park NJ is known for being a top tourist destination for LGBT tourists and for its tight-knit supportive gay community. This beautiful town located on New Jersey’s central coast only has a population of 16,116 but the numbers swell to thousands in the summer. The area boasts a beautiful old boardwalk and an orchestra pavilion that dates back to the 1870s. Many of the older hotels, amusement parks and attractions from the 1800s and 1900s have been restored, replicated or integrated into newer sturdier architecture which gives this entire are a unique Victorian charm all of its own.
- When a town is located on the shore, you have to go the beaches. Asbury Park has you covered for a nice dip in the ocean, unless, that is, you prefer your dips uncovered. In that case, Asbury Park has Gunnison Beach (New Jersey’s Only clothing optional beach) for those that are truly uninhibited.
- In addition to these attractions, there are over 60 restaurants, bars, live venues, and facilities to enjoy in Asbury Park, not to mention surfing and other outdoor activities.
