The Ocean City Fall Block Party will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Asbury Avenue between Fifth and Fourteenth streets.

More than 30,000 people and 350 crafters will attend, with exhibits, entertainment, food and other features as part of the mile-long event.

The event began 38 years ago and has since grown tremendously. It formally ends at 9:30 p.m. with fireworks being launched from the Ninth Street beach.

There will also be a Greek food festival at the Ocean City Tabernacle Grounds and a seafood center at the Music Pier on the Boardwalk at Moorlyn Terrace.

Parking will be free throughout the city, and several Boardwalk stores will also remain open.
