On the boardwalk
27th Street to Inlet Lot
Event Type: Family
6th Annual Drive in Disguise and Halloween Boardwalk Parade - OPEN TO EVERYONE!
Residents and visitors with a vintage Ocean City license plate are invited to ride down the Boardwalk during the annual OC Vintage License Plate Rally, which will take place Saturday, October 22. Continuing with the Drive in Disguise theme, anyone wishing to decorate their car also will be invited to ride down the Boardwalk. Decorated cars will join the OC vintage plate cars during the rally, which will roll-off at 27th Street at 3 p.m. This year, instead of driving into the Inlet Lot, cars will line up on the concrete part of the boardwalk north of the pier. Voting and award presentations will take place there. The public will be able to vote for their favorite decorated car. Each vote is one dollar. A People’s Choice trophy as well as additional trophies will be awarded. Bicycles are also welcome. Of course, the bicycles need to be decorated and participants need to register. There will be a category for best decorated bicycle and rider. In addition, various local organizations will have information booths set up and a DJ will play music. Several local businesses will offer a 15% discount to participants for the weekend.
There is no fee for those with an Ocean City ‘vintage’ license plate (these are not vintage car tags but the special Ocean City plate). There is a $25 donation fee for non-vintage license plate participants and those vehicles must be decorated. Proof of insurance is required for all participants. Proceeds from the event will be benefit the Ocean City Downtown Association. Registration forms are available at www.downtownassociation.net.
