The day may have been a little more cloudy than previously predicted, but it didn't stop South Coast residents from flocking to Fort Tabor for a little rest and relaxation at the inaugural Sun of a Beach Festival. 

Whether attendees were there to listen to a little island music, savor the breeze coming off the bay or delve into a sweet cannoli, yummy crab cake or ice cold brew, everyone seemed to have a grand time at New Bedford's newest event.

If you didn't get to make it to this year's event, our photo gallery showcases some of the sights from the party. If you like what you see, be sure to come out next year when we throw the South Coast's newest party all over again.
