What’s Happening Today – June 21, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
With everything we have for you in today’s show, it will be nearly impossible to hear those two, cringe-worthy words, “I’m bored.” We’re focusing on just a sliver of the fun you can have in uptown Ocean City!
We start with a stop at the Carousel Oceanfront Hotel & Condos between 117th & 118th Streets in Ocean City. It’s a place where you can ice skate to escape the summer heat, and so much more! From grabbing a great meal at one of the many dining possibilities at Carousel, to swimming with mermaids, to sitting back, relaxing, and watching a movie on the beach, this is one place you’ll definitely want to visit this summer. We sent 102.5 WBOC‘s Corey Phoebus to get in on the fun.
DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield has the arts covered for us today. She stops by the Ocean City Center for the Arts, where the Art League of Ocean City has a summer schedule packed with opportunities to keep your creative juices flowing this summer. There’s pottery for the kids, watercolor workshops, Clay-a-Palooza, and so much more. You’ll want to carve out time in the coming weeks to visit this Ocean City gem.
What would this time of year be without summer camp? We sit down with Ocean City’s Recreation Manager, Al “Hondo” Handy, to hear more about some of the many camps that are available to children in the coming months. Hondo will also tell us about a new program in which campers get hands-on experience with the local watershed, thanks to the Maryland Coastal Bays Program.
We’re also off to BJ’s on the Water at 75th Street and the Bay in Ocean City. It’s a place where you’ll find fabulous food (such as their famous Seafood Skins), but so much more. In fact, a couple of the draws to BJ’s are its entertainment lineup, and daily duck feedings on the Bay.
Northside Park at 125th Street on the Bay spans 58 acres – all of which can be used to have a great time. From softball and baseball, to soccer, fishing, a gym, picnic areas, walking and jogging paths, Sundaes (as in ice cream sundaes) in the Park. Do you get the idea that there’s lots to do? Corey stops by to show us.
We begin our giveaways in the 2018 DelmarvaLife Summer Guide. We announce three winners today, of three incredible prizes. Will you be one of them?
