School is starting next week and Labor Day is right around the corner. Summer must be over, right? Not so fast. In Ocean City, Maryland, we are still weeks away from Sunfest and Bikefest, meaning there are still an abundance of activities going down all over town every day of the week. If you’re looking to add some excitement to the last week of August, Ocean City is certainly the right place. Here is a look at some events and things to do around town this week:
– Ocean City is well known for its car shows, truck shows, air shows, and bike week. Well, the time has come to add another vehicle celebration to the list. Ocean City Jeep Week returns August 22-25 for the 4th consecutive summer, and, as the only major Jeep event in the Mid-Atlantic region, has quickly become a big time attraction. After a modest turnout in its inaugural year in 2010 and cancellation due to Hurricane Irene in 2011, last year, the Jeep community returned to town in droves, and 2013 is expected to see even more growth. In order to keep up with the growing popularity, Ocean City is hosting many Jeep week functions to keep visitors entertained; including the Beach Crawl, obstacle courses, crab feasts, and more!

– What’s better than a day full of unlimited amusements and water rides? How about helping raise money for a great cause while you’re having an awesome afternoon? Saturday August 24 you get the chance to do just that at Red Cross Day at Jolly Roger Amusement Park. Your $25 ticket gets you unlimited access to the waterpark and miniature golf from 10am – 6pm, as well as amusement rides from 2-6pm. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, so mark your calendar and get ready to make a difference while having a good time.
– Ocean City’s Lucky Summer of 13 is winding down, so make sure you take full advantage of nightly free events while they last. Our Lucky Summer of 13 Free Events page has full details on the beach lights, fireworks, concerts, movies, and other family friendly events taking place all across town.
