MANASQUAN — The Manasquan Beach Department immediately sold all 400 of the seasonal beach parking passes offered on Saturday morning. Another 400 will go on sale Sunday morning at 8 a.m.
Another 400 of the $100 parking passes for 2021 were also sold separately online in December.
Councilman and Beach Committee Chair Richard Read said that Saturday’s 400 passes almost immediately sold out at 8 a.m. when they went on sale.
The borough handed each person in line a card with a number up to 400 so people would not have to wait in line if they were not definitely able to purchase the pass.
“Right at 8 when we started everyone knew that was it, we’d handed out all the cards we can,” he said.
Mr. Read said he thinks some people began lining up as early as 4 or 5 a.m. for their passes.
