Big Toys on the Boardwalk

October 26, 2019

Located on the boardwalk around the amusement pier and Inlet Parking Lot

Here is an experience for the kid in all of us young or old. Ocean City will line the walkway around the amusement pier and overflow into the Inlet Parking Lot with vehicles to touch, climb in, take photos with and simply enjoy on Saturday, October 26th.

This O.C.toberfest event, now entering its fourth year, frees imaginations to run wild in Ocean City. Kids of all ages are welcome to come to Ocean City’s Boardwalk and Inlet Lot to take the seat and feel what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of unique and awesome machines. The Town brings out their most unusual vehicles and is joined by friends with their big toys: construction equipment, emergency vehicles, muscle cars, race boats, and more – even a helicopter will be on site!

For more information or to display your toy, please call 410-250-0125

An American Premiere by an Argentine-American composer opens our season! Lalo Schifrin, known for his legendary film scores, such as Mission Impossible and Bullitt, is also a wonderful concert music composer.

As a companion piece, we will play Nicolas Mazmanian’s Mission Impossible Variations, and we will close the concert with Beethoven’s Olympian Symphony No. 7, which Wagner called “the apotheosis of dance”.

Spartan Race

October 5, 2019

HUGH T CROPPER INLET, OCEAN CITY MD

It’s time to make a splash, Spartans. We’re headed to Ocean City, Maryland for some fun in the sun at the 3-mile Ocean City Spartan Sprint.

Don’t expect much lounging around on this beach vacation. You’ll be speeding through the sand, boardwalks and streets of Ocean City, all while weaving your way through 20 of Spartan’s most famous obstacles.

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite among both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20 obstacles over 3 mi / 5 km, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.
