Some things to do if golf really isn't your bag . . .

May 08, 1994|By Dail Willis

There is something besides celebrity golf to entertain Ocean City visitors this weekend: The 17th White Marlin Boardwalk Band Parade and an all-day craft show, both sponsored by the Downtown Association.

Lois Popp of the association says the craft show will be held on North Division Street in downtown Ocean City. It begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 14 and runs until 5 p.m. The show will feature 40 vendors, she says.

At 1 p.m., grand marshal Thelma Connor, owner of the Dunes Manor Hotel, will lead the parade from its starting point in front of Phillips Beach Plaza Hotel on the boardwalk at 13th Street all the way to the inlet.

Two boardwalk trains, the first carrying the marshal and city officials, will be followed by 15 high school bands from five states, 40 floats and 19 Shriner clown cars and other entries from the Boumi Temple in Baltimore.

"It's a busy day," Mrs. Popp says. "There's trophies given for several divisions of bands and floats. The Downtown Association awards the trophies immediately following the parade."

The master of the ceremonies for the day will be local television personality Wayne Cannon, Mrs. Popp says.

Admission to the parade and the craft show is free. For more information, call the Downtown Association at (410) 289-1413.
