concerts

A crowd gathers to hear Kathie Martin & the Hot Rods perform during Sundaes in the Park, last summer. The first concert for 2019 will take place this Sunday. 

(June 14, 2019) Residents and visitors can spend their weekends this summer enjoying a tasty treat while listening to music during Sundaes in the Park, held every Sunday evening at Northside Park in Ocean City.

Brenda Moore, special events coordinator for the Town of Ocean City, said between 1,200 and 2,500 people are expected to attend the 22nd annual event each Sunday evening.

“The goal is to host a family friendly and fun event in the park after dinner on a Sunday night,” Moore said.

Sundaes in the Park will take place from 7-9 p.m. every Sunday evening through Labor Day weekend at the park on 125th Street.

Panama Rex “The Ultimate Jam Buffett Band” is slated to open the summer concert series. 

Also scheduled to provide live entertainment each week during the summer are: DJ Magellan, Melissa Alesi & King Schascha; Bob Louhgheed & the Memphis Mafia; Kick it Out; Mike Hines and the Look; Kittyback; Guys In Thin Ties; Vertigo Red; Front Page News; The Janglebachs; Jaded Love; and Sapphire.

Moore said music lovers should get ready for “great entertainment with a live band on the Sundaes in the Park stage.”

A children’s entertainer will also be at the park during the events, Moore said.

Sundaes in the Park participants can purchase and assemble their own creations with a variety of ice cream flavors and toppings.

Moore said fireworks would also follow the each evening at 9 p.m.

“It is a free event and family friendly,” Moore said.

Moore said attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair, take a walk in the park and listen to the live entertainment. 

“[It’s] an opportunity to create great Ocean City memories,” she said.

Moore said while the event is rain or shine, the fireworks are weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather, movies will be shown inside the Northside Park facility.
