In a Memorial Day Weekend tradition, the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce, City Official and the Ocean City Beach Patrol will officially "unlock the ocean" for the season with the turning of a giant key. The first to plunge into the newly opened ocean are a collection of fully clothed (and half-sane) representatives of Ocean City businesses and organizations. Participants dress in business suits, carry brief cases and march into the ocean to the strains of Pomp and Circumstance to welcome the new season. 12 Noon on the beach next to the Music Pier. For more information, call 609-399-6111.
The 2021 event is scheduled for Friday, May 28, 2021 at noon on the beach adjacent to the Ocean City Music Pier. Everybody is invited to participate in the fun.
