Focus: Reprise of a Rumson Locals’ Summer Down by the River

Rumor, or a National Weather Service report, has it that the sun will come out tomorrow. And we’re not talking about the old musical Annie. It’s locals’ summer weather wish come true from a good source and the telltale sign of rainbows sightings at dusk.

Last week it rained. It poured. Then out came the sun on Saturday. It continued to shine brightly on the Rumson-Fair Haven area weekend. Then skies turned grey, cloudy and rainy. But, the forecast for Wednesday turns the sun back on the area through Saturday.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures will hover around the mid- to high 70s with sunny skies through Saturday.

That’s a good enough break to enjoy some riverfront and beachfront time, like all good locals relish.

It was around this time last year that these scenes down by the river at Victory Park were captured. It’s going to be a good day for a reprise starting tomorrow. Your favorite waterfront spot?
