Check out the video from the Beach Maze!


An A-MAZE-ING time was had by all at the seventh annual O.C.Toberfest. Thousands of people experienced the thrill of the giant Holloween Beach Maze with surprises around every corner. While walking through the maze kids of all ages could play the “eye spy” game to look for haunted skeleton fish. Everyone who made it through the maze received a little prize plus there were hourly door prizes to local restaurants for those who found the correct number of haunted fish (the correct answer was 10 the first weekend and 9 the second weekend!)

Another event that took place as part of the O.C.Toberfest events was the “Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade.” Over 200 pets, from seven states, plus DC, and their owners and friends came out Saturday October 20th, dressed in their best costumes and paraded the boardwalk. Cheswick the Walk Smart Crab was the Parade Grand Marshal followed by some adorable pets up for adoption and then all the awesome participants! Click here for a complete list of winners! While the event was free to participate, over $1,300 in donations were collected for the Worcester County Humane Society. Hopefully a few furry friends found new homes as well! 

After the Pet Parade participants and spectators got to sit back and watch the Drive and Disguise parade, which featured cars decorated for Halloween. Once the parade reached the pier the cars parked along the boardwalk so some Trunk or Treating! 

For an added treat there were Haunted Halloween fireworks Saturday night, October 20th, that lit up the beautiful Autumn sky! The Boardwalk was packed!

Unfortunately the “The Great Pumpkin Race” scheduled for Saturday October 27, 2018 was canceled due to the weather. Those that built a pumpkin race car could email their submissions for judging and awards. There were some great submissions!

All O.C.Toberfest events were free thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Ocean City Mayor and City Council along with the Department of Tourism, Dough Roller, Francis Scott Key Family Resort, Hotel Motel Restaurant Association, Layton’s Restaurant, Pit & Pub and Seacrets. For more information on any of these events or for sponsorship opportunities please call 410-798-6304 or email infoevent@specialeventpro.com
