Cruisin’ Weekend in OC : May 19 -22

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.


Car enthusiasts, get ready for Cruisin’ Weekend in Ocean City, 2011! May 19th – 22nd. This popular car show features more than 3,000 hot rods, custom cars, classic vehicles, street rods, muscle cars, and other original creations. This car show has been held in Ocean City for the past 20 years and draws enthusiasts from around the country.

The Ocean City Factory Outlets will be hosting their Classic Cruisin’ car show on Friday from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The parking lots at the outlet center will be packed with classic cars. Events are scheduled all day. A 50/50 raffle will be held to benefit our local Special Olympics program. Not into the cars? Still go to the outlets! The stores will be having sidewalk sales and special shopping promotions for the day. Hundreds of cars will compete for awards like Outstanding Show and Best in Show.

Check out the inlet parking lot for special deals! Many manufacturers will have booths set up for purchases. Most vendors will be offering special Cruisin’ discounts and deals. The inlet parking lot will be open Thursday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

How about some historic cars in a historic town? Drive your cruiser to Berlin for their Spring Car Show. Your old car will fit right in in Berlin. Over 300 cars will be parked on the streets of the little town. The streets will be closed to traffic so crowds can walk the streets and check out the cruisers. Prizes will be given away to those Best in Show. Head to Berlin on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to see the cars.

Saving the best for last! Head to the Steer Inn Tavern, outside of South Ocean Pines on Route 589, for Rods & Rockers! This vintage car and bike show is open to all 1970’s and older Hot Rods, Café Racers, Antiques, Rat Rods, and Bikes, Deadbeaters, Trucks, and specialty creations. Starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Snag some good eats inside the restaurant. A beer wagon will be set up outside if you get need a beverage.

With so many great things to check out, you better get cruising’! Head into Ocean City, Berlin, or Ocean Pines for this year’s Cruisin’ OC!
