Billy Walton


The Billy Walton Band will perform at Crabsecon on Saturday.

On Saturday, Sept 15, the town of Absecon will cease to exist. That’s because for one day only, the town will officially rename itself “Crabsecon.” Of course the day isn’t limited to a simple amusing name change, in order to celebrate the recent renovation of two of its parks, (Faunce Landing and Turner Cove), there is an entire day of fun planned. Turner Cove will host kids activities and games from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a crab costume contest, a magician, a face painter, crab walk relays and crab catch and release lines. At Faunce Landing a music and food truck festival will run from 3 to 9 p.m. with performances from Three Flights Up, The Billy Walton Band, Stealing Savanah, Cheers The Band and Best of The Eagles. Turner Cove is located at Route 30 and Turner Avenue in Absecon. Faunce Landing Park is located at 139 E. Faunce Landing Road in Absecon. For more info go to
