The Holiday Weekend Ahead!

The Eastern Shore is the perfect place to celebrate your Fourth of July holiday. There are so many awesome events and activities happening this weekend that it can be difficult to sort through them all on your own. That is why Lighthouse Lakes created an agenda to help assist in your planning!

The weekend kicks off with the 35th Annual Canyon Kick off Tournament on Friday June 30th. The event will continue through the weekend, closing with an awards banquet on July 2nd. Registration for this event is on June 29th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and is free to paid OCMC boat members. All are welcome to watch the weigh-in results of this tournament June 30th, July 1st and 2nd at the Sunset Marina from 5-7:30pm. A winner from each division will be given eternal bragging rights and a $1,000 cash prize, so go register today!

If fishing doesn’t interest you so much, then head over to The Freeman Stage at Bayside for a show headlined by legendary comic, Jay Leno with a special guest performance from the barbershop quartet, Gimme Four. The Freeman Stage at Bayside is an outdoor venue so inclement weather can result in cancellation of events. For more information and ticket purchases visit

On Saturday, July 1st bring your family to the Carousel for dinner and a FREE live ice-show! The Next Ice Age will show their routine, “After Time” from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Book the best seats in the house by making reservations for rink-side dining! Seating is limited so get yours today by calling (410)-524-1000 ext.7195.

Next, grab your picnic basket and beach chairs and head to Northside Park on 125th Street for their Sundaes in the park event. Kicking off July 2nd, they will have an awesome build-you-own sundae bar and live entertainment. Then from 7 to 9 p.m. enjoy Jesse Garron’s Elvis tribute band while watching the sun set over the beautiful Assawoman Bay. The night will end with a fireworks display at 9 p.m.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Monday, July 3rd Movies on the beach present Space Jam at 8:30 p.m. on 27th Street beach. So don’t forget to grab your popcorn and a blanket! All movies are subject to change and are weather permitting. For more information call Chris Clarke at (410)-250-0125.

Last but definitely not least is the exciting Fourth of July holiday! Ocean City is offering two FREE concerts in two great locations. Beginning at 8 p.m. in Northside Park, Mike Hines and The Look will take the stage, followed by fireworks after at 9:30 p.m. However, if country music is more your style then be sure to stop and see Triple Rail Turn perform at the N. Division Street beach at 8 p.m. which will also be followed by a firework display at 9:30 p.m.

Another great all-day event is being hosted by the very popular Seacrets Jamaica USA, located on 49th street bayside. The day will take a running start at 10:00 a.m. when doors open for their annual Independence Day party consisting of live entertainment, food, drinks, and of course, fireworks!  Their elaborate fireworks presentation will begin around 9:30 p.m so make sure to snag your seat early.

Don’t worry, we also thought about those looking somewhere other than Ocean City to celebrate! Make your way to Bethany Beach, Delaware for their annual Fourth of July Parade which will begin at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Garfield Parkway at noon. Get ready to see elaborate costumes, awesome scenery, and twelve exceptional bands of different varieties! Then continue the celebration in downtown Bethany Beach for boardwalk fun and fireworks scheduled to begin at dusk. Please visit for more information.

With all these options, you’ll be sure to have a great Fourth of July holiday. So make sure to wear your most patriotic gear and head to the shore for all of the fun. Have a safe and happy Fourth everyone!
