OCEAN CITY — The free family Halloween fun continues this weekend with the giant Halloween Beach Maze and a race the likes of which Ocean City has never seen before.

Experience a “pleasant” scream as you meander the sands of the giant beach maze. Wicked witches, pirates of the sand, scary scarecrows, ghouls in the graveyard, zombies and more await your arrival. The beach maze is free for the whole family. Look for the entrance to the maze on the beach near North Division Street.
