Now, it's been confirmed that the event is actually still on! You can shop virtually right from the comfort of your own home. The block party takes place on the first or second weekend of October every year and encourages people to shop small and local. Residents, of course, look forward to this event every year, so it's nice the weekend is still taking place in SOME sort of way.

According to the flyer displayed on OceanCityVacation.com, there will, in fact, be some shopping for folks who'd still rather do it in person. Obviously, social distancing guidelines will be in place and must be followed should you choose to go that route. Also, outdoor dining will also be an option all weekend long.

The Fall Virtual Block Party is scheduled for the 2nd weekend in October and will run from the 9th through the 11th. Once closer to the date, the stores participating in the event will be posted HERE for you to determine whether or not you'd prefer to shop at home or in person.
