It feels no where near where we'd like it to for the beach right now, but it's a good time to start buying passes for next summer.

Manasquan Borough officials will be selling early beach badge's and parking passes beginning Monday December 11.

Stop by anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday December 11 and Sunday December 17 or between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on December 15 at various locations to purchase your passes.

Early beach badge sales open up online Friday December 8 at 9 a.m. but will close out after they've all been sold out.

Borough officials say to learn more about the online parking pass purchasing plan, visit www.viplypass.com as they'll be offering it through the VIPLY pass application.

After that, you'll have to wait until April of 2018 for additional online and in-person sales on dates yet to be announced.

If you purchase your parking passes online December 8, you can pick them up at the Manasquan Beach Office from Thursday December 14 to Saturday December 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The passes may also be picked up any day during April 2018 sale dates on weekends in May and June and when the beach officially opens for daily business in the middle of June.

On Monday December 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beach badge sales and a limited number of parking passes will be sold in the St. Denis Gym at 90 Union Avenue (Route 71).
