Martin Z. Mollusk, Ocean City’s weather-predicting mascot, will attempt to see his shadow once again at 11 a.m. Saturday (May 13) indoors at the Ocean City Music Pier (between Eighth and Ninth streets on the boardwalk). Martin will be joined by his special guest, the Eagles’ own Jon Dorenbos.
Ocean City’s hermit-crab mascot seeks his shadow in a local version of Groundhog Day. Martin Z. Mollusk has successfully predicted an early summer every year four decades.
The tongue-in-cheek event is an annual tradition that usually does mark the arrival of nicer early-season weather in Ocean City.
The Ceremony starts promptly at 11 a.m. inside the Music Pier
