Fall Block Party and Fireworks Spectacular
October 7, 2017
Fall Block Party and Fireworks Spectacular is the party to enjoy with more than 400 crafters. Most of all, a spectacular fireworks display in the evening over the ocean.
Spend the day downtown from 5th to 14th streets on Asbury Ave. from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Food vendors and entertainers line Asbury Avenue while the Block Party draws tens of thousands to Ocean City for Columbus Day Weekend.
Entertainers and bands perform at various spots along the avenue between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. This year, a Mummers band – The Pennsport String Band – joins the fun at 12th Street. Children’s pony rides will be available on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle (at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue) during the same hours. Vendors including Asbury Avenue restaurants will offer food of every variety.
Parking is free on all metered streets, in addition, at all municipal parking lots in Ocean City, including at the Transportation Center lot (Ninth Street and Haven Avenue) and on the 700 and 800 blocks of Central Avenue.
A 9 p.m. fireworks display over the ocean caps off the evening. The show launches from a barge off the Ocean City Music Pier. It will be best viewed from the boardwalk and beach between Fifth Street and 14th Street. Call 1-800-BEACH-NJ for more information.
