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.

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.
