Ocean City, Md. Gets Busy for Memorial Day Weekend

Posted:
OCEAN CITY, Md.-On Friday, many people were ready to dig their toes into the sand and the town of Ocean City welcomed them during the week of the Memorial Day holiday.

"We spent so much time shoveling snow in York Pennsylvania that we are going to enjoy the warm weather here compared to what we had earlier this winter," said Ed Tress as he got ready for a bike ride on the boardwalk with his friends, "it was the worst winter we've ever had."

Chris Traylor of Annapolis said that besides the attraction of the sun, sand and the beach he was hoping to take home a Dodge Challenger since he bought seven raffle tickets.

"This is the car I am actually going to win, it's a beautiful purple and the color matches well my eyes," Traylor said loalaughing
any businesses along the boardwalk told WBOC, they were looking forward to cashing in on all of the foot traffic that started to pick up through out the day Friday.

"We just got an order for 60 cases of fries and we're hoping we can turn them out as quick as possible," said Ronald Gillenardo of Boardwalk Fries.

"We worked from March,. April and May and so three months of work went into getting prepped for the summer," said AJ Biri of a gift shop along the boardwalk,  "we're just trying to set everything up, trying to have our merchandise out, everything is brand new for the year."

The iconic fishing pier was also opened to the public which was being repaired due to damages from Hurricane Sandy and this past winter's snow storms.
