This week in OC: August 29- September 5, 2014

As the end of another summer season is upon us, we, too, are left asking where the time went. With lots of Labor Day weekend events planned and fall festival season right around the corner, however, the fun is far from over in Ocean City, Md. So, rather than dwell on the inevitable opening of schools, the impending arrival of hurricane season, or the increasingly cooler temperatures soon coming our way, let’s rejoice in the fact that Ocean City is expecting clear skies and mild temperatures this holiday weekend, and has a full schedule of events, activities, music, and more to keep the entire family from forgetting about fall for at least a few more days.

Here is a look at the highlights from around town this Labor Day weekend:

– The Labor Day Weekend Arts & Crafts Festival kicks off today at the Convention Center and runs through Sunday. Stop by to check out unique decorations, jewelry, ceramics, paintings, specialty foods, and other fine offerings from nearly 60 vendors. Visit ocshows.com for more information or a full list of vendors.

– Over 200 privately owned aircraft, custom cars and antique military vehicles will be on display at the Ocean City airport from 10-3pm on Saturday as the annual Wings and Wheels Expo returns.

– This Sunday, golf lovers will tee up at Deer Run Golf Course in Berlin to join the fight against cancer in the 5th Annual Cancer Memorial Golf Tournament. Registration cost $100 and includes continental breakfast, lunch, cart, tee gift, range balls and one Mulligan. Registration begins at 7:30 am with a shotgun start at 9 am. The tournament will also feature prizes, silent auction, putting contest and longest drive contest. Raffle tickets cost $5 with two winners awarded $500 each. Call 410-629-0060 to register or 410-749-1625 for more info. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

– Don’t miss your last chance to experience the extravaganza known as OC Beach Lights this Saturday and Sunday on the beach at N. Division St. These free shows feature eye-popping laser light shows set to music. Each performance lasts approximately 8 minutes and this weekend there are special start times at 8:30, 9, 9:30, and 10pm.

– Finally, after extending its stay through September 5, Spanish Tall Ship El Galeon Andalucía wraps up its visit in Ocean City next week. If you want to see her before she sets sail, head down to 3rd and 4th streets, bayside to board and tour the ship daily from 10am-6pm. Regular tickets start at $16, but discounted rates and VIP packages can be purchased at http://tallshipevent.com.
