Happy Tuesday, Ocean City lovers! Here’s hoping you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend ’19. If you celebrated the holiday in town, then you know that the weather couldn’t have been better and that steady crowds took hold of the beach and Boardwalk Friday through Monday; it was the perfect weekend to be in Ocean City, and there are certainly many more to come.
If you were in town over the weekend, feel free to submit your vacation photos to this week’s Photo Friday. All we ask is that your Ocean City photo submissions be current (i.e. taken in 2019) and that you include your name and email address in the caption so we can reach you if you’re chosen as the winner of the week. The prize is two passes to Jolly Roger Amusements, good all summer long.
This week in OC will see the end of May and the beginning of June, which is pretty exciting since there are so many fun things happening in June — Air Show, anyone? Or Jellyfish Festival? Or Senior Week, and the free, fun Play It Safe activities that come with it (they start this week!)? How about the end of the school year for kids and all the warm, sunny beach days that lie ahead? Sometimes, it’s the little things that make this season so great.
