The Hydrofest is returning to Wildwood Crest next year. The Tourism Development Commission in the borough will provide $10,000 towards the event in 2011. Commissioner Don Cabrera told Coastal Broadcasting he understands it is a large amount of money, but the positives of the event are many in the amount of people that are brought into the area. Hydrofest did not take place this year. Cabrera said that the first weekend in October would be a “dead weekend” without the Hydrofest.
