OCEAN CITY, Md.- With the Dew Tour set to open on Wednesday, Ocean City businesses are anticipating the event to help draw plenty of new customers through their doors all week long.

The Dew Tour draws thousands of skating fans, both casual and a bit more hardcore to Ocean City.  Including Brian Zygmontowicz who skated to Ocean City from Atlantic City, N.J.

"I left Monday, no Sunday, at noon, and made it into Wildwood that evening.  And then, yesterday I ended up getting on the ferry after Wildwood, and skated the rest of the way in," Zygmontowicz said.

All types of fans are expected to visit the various Ocean City businesses, including the skate shop "Get Gnarly" which the owner said just opened up in May.  The businesses' owner said he is looking forward to being the perfect shop during Dew Tour weekend.

"[It's a] five-day event, so we are going to be pretty busy. It's going to be tough to sleep this week probably," said owner David Leverton.

Another business, just across the street, is "The Muze Cafe," which opened last year and is drawing customers, but is really hoping to cement itself during Dew Tour weekend.  Employees there believe they are in a prime location, just off the boardwalk, and a few hundred feet from the Dew Tour.

"It couldn't be any better.  You have all the people coming off the beach, and they are looking.  They are swimming every which way to get up there, so hopefully they see it as they come," said cafe employee, Dakota Sams.

The Dew Tour runs from Wednesday through Sunday in Ocean City.
