Large Week-Long Crowds Expected at Dew Tour in O.C.

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Big tricks, big air, and big falls will draw crowds all weekend long to the Dew Tour in Ocean City.  With that, there will be increased population in Ocean City and the town is working to take full advantage of it.

"The town wraps itself around the event. If you look through the papers this week, every single business is saying welcome Dew Tour, they've got specials, they've got signature products or T-shirts or jewelry that is all about the Dew Tour," said Melanie Pursel, the Executive Director of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce.

The population is expected to swell to about 250,000 people in Ocean City this weekend and the Dew Tour expects anywhere from 90 to 100,000 fans through the gate.  Some fans have even started to plan their summer vacations around when the Dew Tour will be in town. With so much success during the first three years, the obvious question is - will the tour be back again?

"This is a really exciting event for us and we are absolutely hoping that we can come back here.  It is really interesting that you have that unique perspective of a beach that is the size and scale for us to be able to host our event here," said Kenny Mitchell, the Dew Tour General Manager.

Before looking ahead to 2014, there is still plenty to do and see at Dew Tour 2013.
