Ocean City Festival Named One of the Wackiest
Ocean City has tried, over the years, to hold events that draw attention. It seems to be working!
Editors of TripAdvisor, which bills itself as the world's largest travel website, has named an Ocean City event "among the wackiest in the country."
Getting the honor is Ocean City's annual "Weird Contest Week", which is scheduled this year to take place August 12 - 16.
Here's what the editors have to say about the event:
Travelers to the Jersey Shore can join in the festivities at any of these kooky contests geared toward bringing family fun to Ocean City. Competitions are held daily in the Music Pier pavilion, boardwalk, and Moorlyn Terrace and are assorted by age group to help level the peculiar playing field. Aspiring Michelangelos can partake in a variety of sculpting contests where a multitude of materials are used including French fries, paper clips and saltwater taffy. Children in the crowd can try their hand in the “Miss and Mr. Miscellaneous” talent show where the most eccentric earns the crown. General admission is free of charge.
