The Dew Tour, a national extreme sports event, is returning to Ocean City this summer.
The Dew Tour is making a return this summer, after breaking attendance records in Ocean City last year.
While it's been widely speculated that the extreme sports tour would be coming back to Ocean City, event organizer Alli Sports waited until today to make it official. The news put to rest any sort of lingering doubt that was building in the chests of a few local worried business owners and town leaders.
Local businesses owners are looking forward to the event's return on Aug. 16, which will include some of the world's most accomplished BMX, skateboarding, and surfing athletes.
More than 73,000 people attended the three-day event last summer, pumping millions of dollars into the local economy, and giving it invaluable exposure to a national television audience.
