The Dew Tour has officially announced it will bring its extreme sports competition back to Ocean City this summer. The news has already swept through the almost deserted resort town, and has lifted many people's expectations of the summer of 2012.
Last year, Ocean City was the first and only east coast stop for the extreme sports tour, and it delivered record numbers as more than 73,000 people attended three days of events at two massive stadiums built right on the beach, just steps from the boardwalk.
City officials say the timing of this year's event is ideal, as the third week in August usually starts the mass exodus for tourists. But the Dew Tour's announcement means folks will likely stick around for one of the biggest events ever to come to town.
