Named for its founding industry of salt hay harvesting, Harvey Cedars Borough is the smallest of the island’s towns.  Still, the community sponsors some of the island's most well-attended and publicized events.  World-class runners flock to the town each year for the Dog Day Road Race, while the Harvey Cedars Activities Committee sponsors wildly popular events where tickets are coveted and limited in number.  The Harvey Cedars Bible Conference, housed in the historic Harvey Cedars Hotel, plays host to a variety of summer activities that attract participants from all over the world.
