Last week the Worcester County Recreation and Parks (WCRP) staff announced that the 2020 Harbor Day at the Docks has been cancelled, but there will be a virtual offering.
“Unfortunately due to the continuance of the COVID-19 pandemic and based on Worcester County Health Department regulations and Maryland safety protocols, Worcester County has made the decision to cancel this year’s Harbor Day at the Docks. The annual event brings residents and visitors from across the region to the West Ocean City commercial harbor to celebrate the shore’s maritime heritage, as well as the sport fishing and commercial fishing industries. This year organizers are inviting the public to follow the Facebook page Harbor Day at the Docks for fun videos highlighting local watermen, children’s crafts, and other activities to enjoy online.
“This decision was not easy, but we look forward to celebrating maritime culture virtually until next year’s event,” WCRP Program Manager Allen Swiger said.
