Free Toll Friday 2024 on the AC Expressway

They’re doing it again! Chickie’s & Pete’s is continuing their Free Toll Friday tradition ahead of Memorial Day Weekend and paying the toll for all cars headed down the shore this Friday, May 24th from 4-5pm. They’ll pay for the tolls for any cars traveling Eastbound through the Egg Harbor Exit during rush hour this Friday from 4-5pm. It almost makes all the shore traffic tolerable. “Free Toll Friday is one of my favorite summertime traditions,” said Chickie’s & Pete’s Chairman and CEO Pete Ciarrocchi. “It’s a great way to thank all those who have supported us over the years and kick off the summer in a fun way. It also signifies the official start to summer!" Chickie's & Pete's has also partnered with the Patriot Fund this Memorial Day Weekend, donating a portion of all proceeds from their “Patriot Punch” cocktail this weekend to The Patriot Fund. For more information on The Patriot Fund and to donate, check HERE. For more about Chickie's and Pete's, check HERE. Free Toll Friday Party at Farley Plaza There’s also a party (and a nice break from the traffic) for travelers at the Farley Plaza. Stop by the Farley Plaza from 10am-3pm for (you guessed it) free Chickie's & Pete's Crabfries! Yep, complimentary fries, plus food and drink from a bunch of other spots too, including: Hershey's Ice Cream Mars Carlo's Bakery Applegreen and Monster Energy Drink. Still hungry? If you’ve got a carload of hungry passengers, this year they added food trucks! There are a variety of foods to offer, including treats from: DonutNV Mister Softee CrawDaddy’s Cajun TACOS Al Carbon Ron's Gardens of Hammonton will also be set up at the Farley Plaza again this summer, offering a wide variety of JERSEY FRESH® produce, fruits and garden plants in season. Farm Animals, Dalmation Puppies AND a K9 Dog Team Even better? There are animals. A petting zoo! They can probably act as 'therapy animals' too if you need it, to help with all that shore traffic. Funny Farm Rescue sanctuary will be there, plus puppy meet and greets with Dalmatian puppies, and the New Jersey State Police K9 dog team too. More Fun Feeling artistic? This year there will be a Sidewalk Chalk Fun Zone. The event will also feature HERO Patrol cars, a classic car Cruise Lot, AC International Airport trucks and equipment, and close to 60 other organizations, vendors, artists and exhibitors. Find the Farley Plaza between the east and westbound lanes of the AC Expressway. The party’s happening this Friday, May 24th from 10am-3pm. Drive safe, and have a wonderful weekend. See you down the shore!
