Here you'll find everything you need to know about Ocean City: daily news coverage and comprehensive information on the island's events, businesses and services, attractions, real estate, beach and boardwalk and more.
Worried about grabbing that last parking space at the mall or getting lost inside the cavernous confines of the big-box retail stores on Black Friday?
Then you might want to head downtown in Ocean City to enjoy the quaint shops offering a relaxed, old-fashioned atmosphere, complete with Christmas carolers and Victorian-style decorations.
“Christmas in the Downtown” is from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. The event features discounts at local shops and a warm and entertaining time throughout downtown Asbury Avenue between Sixth Street and 11th Street, said Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Gillian.
