The Spring and Fall Block Party are arguably two of the biggest Ocean City events. One starts the summer season, while the other ends it. Without those events happening, who’s to say that summer really has to end?
The Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce perhaps has the same thought in mind with their new event- “Ocean City Winterfest.”
“Ocean City Winterfest will be a high-end holiday shopping spectacular where guests can safely enjoy the magic of the season at an outdoor holiday market. Winterfest will feature your favorite local businesses and restaurants along with many local crafters,” the Chamber said in their press release.
The event will take place on Friday, November 13 from 12-5pm and on Saturday from 9am-5pm at the Ocean City High School Field, 6th Street and Boardwalk. There will be vendors, activities for kids and a visit from Santa Claus, the Grinch and Tom Turkey.
“2020 has been a difficult year and we wanted to bring something new to Ocean City to help get people in the holiday spirit and promote shopping local. Winterfest will provide a safe, outdoor environment with a festive atmosphere, all while supporting the local businesses,” said Michelle Gillian, executive director of the Chamber in a press release.
