Summer Kickoff In Ocean City with Governor Larry Hogan and Mayor Rick Meehan
May 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ocean City, Md., is celebrating the beginning of summer 2018 by bringing back a ceremonial summer kickoff event, which first took place more than seven decades ago. In 1946, Maryland Gov. Harry O’Connor joined Ocean City Mayor Daniel Trimper Jr. to officially start the summer season in Ocean City by placing an umbrella in the sand. Now, almost 75 years later, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan will join Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan to reestablish the ceremonious event by placing the first umbrella of the season on Ocean City’s beach on Friday, May 25 at 11 a.m.
During the event, Gov. Hogan and Mayor Rick Meehan will provide remarks about the significance of the event and what it means for Ocean City and the town’s visitors. Mayor Meehan will also speak about upcoming events and other highlights that vacationers can enjoy this year, starting this Memorial Day weekend.
