Innkeepers, sea captains and other restless spirits may appear on your Ocean City Ghost Walk—a 1.7-mile tour taking you past sites along the Boardwalk and Baltimore Avenue. Stops include the Life-Saving Station Museum, the Henry Hotel, the Atlantic Hotel, the Tarry-A-While Guest House and the Shoreham Hotel, which is reportedly home to three ghosts.
Drive in Disguise and Trunk or Treat: October 19, 3 p.m.
In Ocean City, even the cars have costume contests! Drive in Disguise car shows are like no other. Participants deck out their vehicles and parade down the boardwalk for a roaring start to the Halloween season. Immediately after, many drivers hand out candy to the kids as part of Trunk or Treat.
O.C.toberfest Beach Maze: Open Weekends
What’s the best part about spending Halloween at the beach? The beach of course! Come experience the thrill of the giant Halloween Beach Maze during its two-weekend run. Kids can meander the sands of the maze encountering wicked witches, pirates, scarecrows, ghouls in the graveyard, zombies and more.
Paranormal Investigation: October 25-26, 7:30 p.m.
The paranormal investigation group, Dead of Night, will conduct an investigation in the notoriously haunted Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum using equipment like an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) recorder and an EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) meter to detect and communicate with the supernatural.
As you tour the museum, staff members will share past paranormal encounters that occurred inside and some chilling stories from when the station was active.
Seacrets Halloween Party: October 26, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
If you find yourself wanting a little more booos in your Halloween events, head to Ocean City’s most famous club. Live music, DJs, costume contests, bayside cocktails—this is one crazy monster mash!
Halloween Spook-Out Party: October 27, 1–3 p.m.
Come celebrate the spookiest season in Northside Park. Fun in the park and in the gym will include costume contests, carnival games, face painting, arts and crafts, hayrides, refreshments and lots and lots of candy. (Don’t worry, there’s enough room at Northside Park to run off all the sugar.)
