Harbor Day at the Docks

October 5 , 2013

West Ocean City Commercial Harbor

This waterfront heritage festival is a family-oriented event that highlights the local maritime culture and traditions of commercial and sport fishing.

Among those activities will be seafood cooking demonstrations, fish cleaning techniques, net mending, scallop harvesting, marlin rigging, and lobster banding.

The Coast Guard will offer boat tours, and free kayak tours will allow visitors to see close-up views of commercial and sport fishing craft. Families can enjoy activities like “Gyotaku” (fish printing on tee shirts), scallop shell painting, storytelling, and scavenger hunts.
