If it seemed like Sunfest weekend was more crowded than usual in the resort area, it’s because it was, as the Town of Ocean City confirmed this morning the 40th Annual Sunfest was attended by 234,474 people, representing a 25% increase over last year and significantly higher than the five-year average of 175,299.
Ocean City Special Events Director Frank Miller said the anniversary event recorded, “the largest attendance in the event’s history. It was a picture perfect weekend and an outstanding event …”
Specifically, attendance for the headline entertainment was also impressive, as 1,535 people attended the Righteous Brothers’ Bill Medley on Thursday night; 1,444 turned out for country acts Parmalee and Eric Paslay and Rick Springfield was a sell out.
In addition, at the conclusion of Sunfest, the summer-long Boardwalk raffle winners are selected. They were St. Luke’s Church Grand Prize of $10,000 to Lynda Johnson of Ocean City; Knights of Columbus Assembly #245 2014 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic with Trailer to Stamislav Zieminksi; St. Mary Star of the Sea Parish 2014 Harley Davidson Fatboy with trailer to Norm Brooks of Delaware; and Ocean City Lions Club 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic to John Gingrich.
