UPDATE: Due to the forecast for rough seas, the fireworks display that had been scheduled for 9 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 12, 2019) has been canceled. The display was to have been launched from a barge in the ocean off Ninth Street.

All other Fall Block Party and Indian Summer Weekend events will continue as scheduled. The forecast calls for partly sunny skies, mild temperatures and light winds.

The popular Ocean City Fall Block Party will take place 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, from 6th to 14th streets along Asbury Avenue. There will be hundreds of crafters, food vendors, pony rides, live music by Tidal Wave Band, the Pennsport String Band and the cast of “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” and more. The event coincides with the annual two-day sidewalk sale on Saturday and Sunday hosted by the merchants along Asbury. 

Over on the Boardwalk, Indian Summer Weekend occurs from Oct. 12 to 14 at the Ocean City Music Pier and includes a large array of seafood vendors. 

Saturday commences with Family Night on the Boardwalk with more music and a dazzling fireworks display at 9 p.m.
