(Sept. 1, 2017) Although summer is winding down and Labor Day is upon us, visitors and residents still have a number of free activities they can check out this weekend in Ocean City.

Beach lights:

The “100 Nights of Lights,” which debuted this summer near North Division Street, will finish out its run this weekend from 9-11 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The free attraction features high-powered searchlights that move and sway in the sky to musical selections playing though speakers on the Boardwalk. The lights also change colors.

For more information, call 410-289-2800.

Movie night:

Ocean City Recreation and Parks will host a free Labor Day movie night on Saturday, Sept. 2, outdoors beginning at around 8:30 p.m., when the sun sets.

“Beauty and the Beast” is slated to be projected on a giant movie screen at the Northside Park Recreation Complex on the west lagoon field along 125th Street. The film was released earlier this year and features Emma Watson as “Belle.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or a blanket, and a concession stand will have refreshments available for purchase. For more information, call 410-250-0125.

Ice show:

There are only two free performances by skilled skaters of the Next Ice Age left. The “After Time” shows will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at the Carousel Hotel on 118th Street.

Audiences will go on a journey, flipping back and forth in time with pop music reflecting different American eras, according to choreographer Tim Murphy.

Each performance runs about 30 minutes and visitors are encouraged to meet the cast, ask for autographs and take pictures following the show.

Those who wish to eat dinner during the show should call the hotel in advance at 410-524-1000 to make a reservation for rinkside dining.

The weekly Sundaes in the Park concert series ends with a huge fireworks show and a performance by Journey tribute band, Separate Ways – the Band, on Sunday, Sept. 3 from 7-9 p.m. at Northside Park on 125th Street.

Attendees can purchase and build their own sundaes for a small fee while listening to the show.

The Maryland Natural Resources “Scales & Tales” program will be in attendance with exhibits for children and educational displays.
