2016 Block Party OC NJ
To kick off the summer like the beach town locals do it, you’ve got to be at the Ocean City NJ Block Party. Every year, this family favorite beach destination hosts a block party that stretches across the heart of Ocean City, New Jersey. Beach town locals, people from the mainland, and even tourists from Pennsylvania and New York come together for this exciting preseason event.
A ten-block span of Asbury Avenue is roped off for the Spring Block Party so that walkers can safely peruse around hundreds of tents. There are free samples and giveaways galore as local business owners show off brand new offerings for the season and connect with customers on a personal level.
Happy crowds of people browse the craft tables and admire displays, while sampling from the food vendors serving boardwalk treats up and down the avenue. Saltwater taffy and fudge, ice cream cones and funnel cakes, water ice and the best pizza on the planet can be found at the Spring Block Party. The Spring Block Party is symbolic as Ocean City transforms from a sleepy winter haven and into a wildly popular place to be during summer vacation.
There is something special about kicking off the warm weather in Ocean City. Get in on the fun as this beautiful beach town revs up for a jam-packed, fun-filled summer.
