As a kid you want to fly. Then you grow up and, well, you still want to fly. We all want to fly. To defy gravity. To feel that weightlessness of flight and thrust ourselves towards the sky and to belong among the creatures that own it. Flight is bringing science, imagination and crazy together to create nothing short of magic. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… the Ocean City, Maryland Airshow! This weekend, if you’re in town, make sure to look to the sky, because there will be a aeronautical display of tremendous proportions, and you don’t want to miss it.

Before we dive head first into this weekend’s splendor, let’s rewind time for a moment and mention a couple of brothers. A couple of brothers named Orville and Wilbur. On a cold, windy day in Kitty Hawk, NC these two men defied gravity. They used some spruce, fabric and ingenuity to invent a machine like the world had never seen before. The Wright Brothers thrust themselves headfirst into flight for the first time on December 3, 1903 and we’ve never looked back since. The above photo documents that day. From Amelia Earhart to Howard Hughes to the Red Baron we’ve come along way since, but none of those names would hold importance without the Wright Brothers. Thank you Wright Bros.

Now onto this weekend… a weekend that is sure to thrill. The epicenter of the OC Air Show is 16th Street, but if you’re anywhere in Ocean City, MD you’re bound to catch spectacular planes of all varieties. The OC Air Show will commemorate the 70th anniversary of VE-Day (victory in Europe, WWII) and there will be B-25 Bomber and P-51 Mustang tribute flights. A descendent of the Mustang, the F-22 Raptor, billed as ‘the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world,’ will also be on display. There will be trick planes, full loops, flybys, paratroopers and general aeronautic hotdoggery. To top it all off the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will be there performing both days! View the following: OC AIR SHOW for a complete list of events and the full schedule. What more can we say, grab the beach chair, some sunscreen and look towards the heavens this weekend! Oh yeah, sun glasses might help.

Sunfest 2014!

Well, i’m not really sure where Summer went and flew off to, but if you turn around, it’s still visible in the rearview. It’s not tailgating or drafting, but it’s still there hanging on for what looks like a few more weeks hopefully. Right now it’s honking at us and flashing it’s lights trying to grab our attention. What’s that you say summer of ’14? It’s Sunfest weekend!? Oh boy, hotdoggonit, it is Sunfest Weekend! Don’t worry everyone, more

‘That’s cool.’ or ‘Hey man, cool.’ or ‘Whoa, over there, now that is wicked cool!’ People recognize cool, and for different reasons. Cool can be applied to a wall paper pattern or even to a flying frog being hurled by a rocket (look up Wallops NASA Frog). Everyone is different, and so is their cool perception. Take for instance smart phones. Smart phone companies spend a ton of money making sure their gadget looks cool. You can’t sit through a commercial break more

RAMPS. In roughly two weeks the Ocean City beaches will be full of these things. Concrete ramps, wooden ramps, steel ramps, vert ramps, kicker ramps, spine ramps, natural moving water ramps (waves) and every other kinda ramp in between. We can rest assure that Evel Knievel will be smiling down on Ocean City during Dew Tour weekend. No, Evel didn’t invent the ramp, or the wheel, but he was the first to cast the spell of RADICAL upon these simple machines. What he more

As in there will be planes in Ocean City.  June 8th through the 9th, Ocean City will be looking to the skies in awe as the 6th annual Air Show transcends.  There is nothing plain about this event with the nations top civilian performers demonstrating flight formations and cutting edge jet technology, this event is anything but for the birds!  The show is free and visible to those in close proximity to the boardwalk. Those seeking a more birds eye view, the Drop more

In retrospect, Ocean City, MD and the Delmarva coast was spared from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. Especially when compared to the destruction and hardships it caused to New Jersey and New York. The ‘Frankenstorm’ that was Hurricane Sandy did destroy much of the iconic Ocean City fishing pier. However the pier will be rebuilt back to its former self in preparation of the 2013 summer.

An icon doesn’t just become one overnight. There has been a fishing pier, in more

The project finished 2 weeks ahead of schedule and under budget, which is always nice! The new boardwalk is a huge improvement. For updates check the Town on Ocean City’s Boardwalk Reconstruction Page.

New Boardwalk in Ocean City

There's nothing like the smell of fresh salt air. But mix in the scents of some newly laid boards and it only gets better.

The Ocean City boardwalk project is a 2 year project but the south end is already looking great. The North end is getting there too, but they still have a few streets to go.
