Town begins setting up for Dew Tour on the beach

July 07, 2011|By Michelle Deal-Zimmerman | The Baltimore Sun

Beginning Monday, Ocean City will be all about the Dew, Dew, Dew.

That's the extreme sports Dew Tour, of course, which opens here on July 21.

In preparation for what is sure to be a huge event, the city will start setting up the beachside venue, which will span the beach from north of the pier to Caroline Street, adjacent to the boardwalk.

The set-up will include a vert ramp, skateboard bowl and a BMX park, plus a festival village.

City officials said to lessen the impact to beachgoers, equipment for the set-up will be brought in during the early morning hours, from midnight to 6 a.m. However, construction will take place during the day and probably last right up until the event.

 You'll need tickets to enjoy the event, of course, but the festival village will be free to the public, as will a Saturday, July 24, concert at 8 p.m.
