DoOC: Hot Rod Weekend

One of my favorite things about Ocean City NJ is that there is always something to do!! This weekend from Friday 9/6 thru Sunday 9/8 Ocean City will be having their Annual Street Rod Weekend right on the boardwalk.

This is the time to really get a feel for Ocean City. Great weather, not to hot and not too cold!! Come for the vintage cars and stay for the atmosphere! Enjoy great food, fun entertainment and fantastic atmosphere!!

Street rod enthusiasts from throughout the East Coast will bring their colorful cars to Ocean City this weekend.
They will display their vehicles on the Boardwalk and at the Fifth Street Parking Lot during the 34th annual Shore Rod Run.
Cars will be parked at the Fifth Street lot (between the Boardwalk and the Ocean City Sports and Civic Center) from Friday afternoon (Sept. 9) to 1 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 11). There will be a Boardwalk display on Saturday (Sept. 10) from noon to 4 p.m.
A street rod is any car manufactured in 1972 or earlier that has been modified with more modern parts. Owners are creative about how they enhance their vehicles and often decorate them with colorful, painted designs. 

Ocean City sponsors the event, which is administered by the Public Relations Office of the Department of Community Services.
There will be a dance and pizza party at 6 p.m. Friday for "Rodders" who arrive early. A craft show is set for the 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. A Fashion Show is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the Music Pier auditorium and will feature clothing from of Ocean City. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

The fabulous Grease Band will entertain at the Music Pier 8 p.m. Saturday. The popular Grease Band plays hits of the 1950s through the '90s. Admission is $20, and the public is invited. Tickets are available at the Music Pier Box Office. Call 609-525-9300 or access
