LONG BRANCH, N.J. - On Monday, July 4th, Monmouth Medical Center and The Unterberg Children’s Hospital joined the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce and the City of Long Branch to celebrate the 26th year of “Oceanfest at Long Branch,” the state’s premier regional Fourth of July celebration.

“Oceanfest would not be possible without the generosity of Monmouth Medical Center,” said Nancy Kleiberg, co-chairman of Oceanfest and executive director of the Great Long Branch Chamber of Commerce. “Monmouth Medical Center has been the premier Oceanfest sponsor since the event’s inception.”

Oceanfest, which takes place on the Oceanfront Promenade adjacent to Pier Village from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., is a family-oriented event featuring sand sculptors, all-day musical entertainment, original arts and crafts, children’s entertainment and a world-class fireworks display.

Monmouth Medical Center nursing staff offered free blood pressure screenings and stroke awareness information throughout the day, and volunteers distributed thousands of promotional items, including sunscreen, flying discs, beach balls and sand pails. Additionally, the Monmouth/Ocean Chapter of Safe Kids was on hand with games, prizes and safety information, including car safety seat checks.
