The newly upgraded Ventnor Fishing Pier will re-open on Friday, June 26, with official ribbon cutting at 6p.

Ventnor City has long enjoyed having an iconic pier grace its shores. At least three piers have previously existed; the first pier was built around 1914, but was replaced by a larger pavilion.
Fire destroyed the second pier in August of 1940, after which a third pier was built to replace the damaged one. That pier was destroyed in a storm in March, 1963.
The current pier underwent a nine-month $3.2 million renovation project in 2007, and reopened on July 4, 2008.
