O.C. Block Party, Oktoberfest, Fall Fests – Weekend Happenings
Ocean City’s Fall Block Party, featuring more than 400 crafters, food vendors and entertainers takes place Saturday, Oct. 6. from 9a-5p on Asbury Avenue between Fifth Street and 14th Street. Make sure you stop by and see my friends from the Humane Society of Ocean City at their booth on Asbury Avenue, with the crew from the Animal Planet's "Bathe to Save" from 10a-2p.
A 9 p.m. fireworks display over the ocean from barge off of the Ocean City Music Pier caps off the evening. The Block Party draws thousands of people to Ocean City for Columbus Day Weekend.
