As summer winds down, festival season picks up in Ocean City, as Sunfest, Bike Week, the Endless Summer Cruisin’ Car Show and OCtoberfest give plenty of reason for a fall trip to the beach. And when winter finally arrives, Ocean City celebrates with the award-winning Winterfest of Lights extravaganza.
