Annual event takes on new dimension to include Halloween element during annual celebration
For the third year in a row, residents and visitors with a vintage Ocean City license plate will be allowed to ride down the Boardwalk during the annual OC Vintage License Plate Rally, which will take place Saturday, October 19. This year, a new dimension, Drive in Disguise, has been added and will allow anyone wishing to decorate their car to be allowed to ride down the Boardwalk also.
“This year’s event is going to include a Halloween twist,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “We are grateful to the Downtown Association for stepping up to sponsor this event and for adding the Drive in Disguise element. I think a lot of people are going to enjoy the Halloween theme.”
Decorated cars will join the OC vintage plate cars during the rally, which will roll-off at 27th Street beginning at noon. Vehicles will drive off the Boardwalk at the Inlet Parking Lot where prizes will be awarded and a group photo will be taken for all vehicles and drivers. In addition, various local organizations will have information booths set up and a DJ will play music.
There is a $25 registration fee for non-vintage license plate participants and those vehicles must be decorated. There is no fee for those with an Ocean City ‘vintage’ license plate and Proof of insurance is required for all participants. Proceeds from the event will be used for prizes and event costs. Registration forms are available at www.downtownassociation.net. For additional information, contact Nancy Howard at 443-235-4405 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
