BELMAR, New Jersey (PIX11)-- Businesses that rely on the Fourth of July for revenue are hoping Hurricane Arthur doesn't totally wash out the holiday.

"When you live by the beach it sometimes comes with the territory," business owner of La Dulce Vida Nick Reseli said. "Sometimes you have good Fourth of Julys, sometimes you don't."

He like many business owners in Belmar, New Jersey, are trying to make the most of a stormy situation.

Owners are concerned customers might stay in during the weekend instead of going out to eat at their venues.
