OCEAN CITY — O.C. Jeep Week, slated for later this month, will include an obstacle course on the beach as an added attraction for the participants after resort officials approved the add-on event after some questions about the approval protocols.
During the Monday, Oct. 6 meeting, Special Events Coordinator Lisa Mitchell presented the Mayor and Council with an updated proposal for O.C. Jeep Week scheduled for Aug. 20-23 including an obstacle course for participants on the beach just north of the pier to Dorchester Street. One of the highlights of O.C. Jeep Week has always been the parade of jeeps down the beach from 29th Street to the Inlet.
The add-on proposed on Monday, just weeks away from the event, includes an obstacle course on the beach allowing participants to drive jeeps of over the beach obstacle course complete with temporary sand hills and other features. Mitchell said the obstacle course had been reviewed and approved by the various department heads potentially impacted by the late edition and only a sign-off from the Mayor and Council was needed to make the requested changes in the event.
