Museum presents Children’s Day on the Bay at Sunset Park

(Aug. 2, 2013) The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum will present its third annual Children’s Day on the Bay Sunday, Aug. 4, which will include an afternoon of games, prizes and activities for families.

The event is scheduled to take place from noon to 4 p.m. on the bay at Sunset Park and South Division Street in downtown Ocean City. There is no cost to participate.

Diane Knuckles, assistant curator of the museum, said approximately 200 people attend each year.

Children will have opportunities to build and sail boats from recyclable materials, learn how to tie nautical knots and play games for prizes, such as a ball toss, and various water games. Representatives from the Ocean City Beach Patrol will make an appearance to talk about their roles in the resort as well as beach safety.

Children will also be able to visit with the Ocean City Mounted Police and their horses, which Knuckles said is very popular.  Ben Cherry will also be performing as Blackbeard the Pirate from 1-3 p.m.

“It’s just a fun day,” said Knuckles. “I’ve gotten comments from parents that they brought their kids back because it’s a free day and you get to learn some stuff. It’s a way to keep cool on a hot day.”

For information call 410-289-4991 or visit www.ocmuseum.org.

Children play during the Children’s Day on the Bay event, hosted by the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum. This year’s activities take place Sunday, Aug. 4.
