Keep your eyes on the sky this weekend – one of our favorite town events, the Ocean City Air Show, is coming up and you won’t want to miss it! The festivities begin on Thursday, the 16th, with the Taxi Before Take Off Party at Blu Crabhouse. The Taxi Before Take Off Party is a fun opportunity to mingle with all the pilots and crew members before the events begin.

The performances begin at noon on Saturday, the 18th, and while the ‘Drop Zone’ can be found on the beach at 15th street, the performances can be seen up and down the boardwalk. Here are some of our favorite places to enjoy the spectacle:

Commander Hotel: The Grotto Pizza in the Commander Hotel on 14th Street has a large, sunny deck right on the Ocean City Boardwalk. This is the perfect spot to enjoy some fresh Grotto Pizza and watch the Ocean City Air Show in the heart of all the action.

Dunes Manor Hotel & Suites: Dunes Manor is having a VIP Deck Party. This is a prime location to watch the Air Show from Dunes Manor’s oceanfront location. The Deck Party even features a catered lunch, open bar, and live entertainment. Sign us up! You can learn more here:

Backshore Brewing Company: If craft beer is more your style, Backshore Brewing Company, located at 10th Street on the Boardwalk, is another great option. Backshore Brewing Company has a fun patio where guests can soak up the sun with a cold brew in hand. Only a few blocks from the action, this is another solid contender.

Hooters: Located on 5th Street, Hooters is a great option for visitors looking to get in on the action, but avoid some of the larger crowds closer to the event. With delicious wings and a great patio right on the boardwalk, what more could you ask for?

Shenanigan’s: With their oceanfront location right on 4th Street, this is another viable option for visitors wanting to be a little further away from the action but not wanting to miss out on the fun. Shenanigan’s has seating right on the boardwalk and has an extensive menu with something for everyone.

No matter where you choose to view the excitement, it’s sure to be a good time for all. You can learn more about all of this week’s events on the OC Air Show website here:
