Ocean City, Md., has compiled all its free events for this summer onto one web site.

It's called Ocean City 'Free-For-All,' and it's designed as a one-stop shop site for all kinds of things to do in Ocean City. All the activities listed, including 'Movies on the Beach,' concerts, and of course, going to the beach, are free.

"You'll find promotions offered by the various hotels and restaurants," says Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan. "Information about the promotional weeks coming up like Restaurant Week. Just all types of information about the free events that we'll offer all summer along the boardwalk.”

Huge Ravens fan? Then the Ravens Roost Parade on June 4 is for you. Have a pack of way too competitive siblings and cousins? You should probably check out June 28th's Family Beach Olympics. And for those that appreciate the finer things, there's the ongoing Art League of Ocean City exhibition and receptions.

You can also sign up for alerts to stay in the loop for upcoming events. Visitors taking advantage of the unofficial start of summer this weekend, however, will be out of luck. The site only lists events for June, July, and August.
