The boat parade and decorated bayfront home contest provides a chance to be part of the highlight of the summer season in Ocean City.

I also urge you all to use extreme caution on our busy summer roads, to follow all traffic laws, to pay attention and to go slow. A number of North End residents have requested that the beach along Great Egg Harbor Inlet be added to the routes for our beach-raking equipment. I’ve been informed that the area between the groin at Seaspray Road and the toll bridge is part of a protected zone designated by the state Department of Environmental Protection, so raking the beach there is strictly prohibited...
