OC Air Show Scheduled June 11-12, 2011

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.

Coming this year – a new and improved OC Air Show! For the past 2 years, the Air show has followed the same routine. For 2011, the jets, planes, and copters are offering something new.

 The OC Air Show is an event that should not be missed! You, your friends, your family, and your children will love the Air Show. Plan to be in Ocean City the weekend of June 11th and 12th.

Reserve a hotel on OceanCity.com that has a room with a balcony for the best views in town! Set your stuff on the beach or rearrange your balcony furniture, gather the kids, and listen for the roar, and watch the fighter jets zooming past you! The Air Show is definitely known as one of the best shows in town, and is free to watch. If you’d like an even better view, premium viewing options are available near 16th Street.  It’s a great event that is fun to see no matter where you are in Ocean City. If you’re not in the “prime viewing area”, don’t worry, the Air Show is visible along most of Ocean City’s beaches.

Not only will you have the opportunity to view an amazing display of aircraft from the beaches of Ocean City, MD, but you will also to enjoy pre-show and post-show activities all weekend long. The OC Air Show has become a tradition in our coastal community. People from all over the United States travel to Ocean City for this event. The Air Show has been drawing fans to Ocean City for the past 4 years. Deb Gnan, a visitor to Ocean City for the Air Show said after last year’s show, “It was great! My first air show… What a rush!”

We recommend that you make hotel reservations early if you’d like to attend this event. Ocean City hotels fill up fast during the week of the air show. For hotel packages and other accommodations, check out http://hotels.oceancity.com/. You can also buy your tickets for the VIP area early, too.  VIP Waterfront Clubhouse and Drop Zone preferred viewing tickets will once again be available for 2011 and can be purchased at www.OCAirShow.com.

Everyone looks forward to the formation flying teams that soar over our beaches. Keith Laughman traveled to Ocean City for vacation and realized that it was Air Show weekend last year and said, “We had no idea it was going on when we planned our trip to OC. We loved every second of it! We’re planning our Ocean City trip around the show next year.”

Who will headline the 2011 OC Air Show?  An awesome line up of military jet demonstrations, parachute teams, civilian aerobatic performers and formation flying teams is being assembled for 2011.  The Air Show team will be announcing the headlining acts in February.
