Cars roll in for 20th annual Ocean City Fall Cruisin' Event

Cars roll in for 20th annual Ocean...

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Another big crowd is making it's way to Ocean City for yet another car show. Thousands are bringing their classic cars, race cars and more to the city's 20th annual Fall Cruisin' event. 

Following the controversy surrounding H2Oi, it's only reasonable for police and the community to be on edge about another car show. 

Ocean City police said they're hoping they don't run into any major problems during this year's Fall Cruisin' event.

Ocean City Police Department's Public Information Officer, Lindsay Richard, said, "Unfortunately after last weekend, our roads are covered in tire marks, so again this week, we're advising individuals to not do burnouts things like that."

Like most car shows in Ocean City, participants of the Fall Cruisin' event said they will be pushing the envelope when it comes to rules of the road.

Keith Davis, a Fall Cruisin' participant, said, "We like to do our burnouts here and there, but we keep it to a minimum where nobody gets hurt, you know? Do a little quick burnout, shut it down, be done and you know, go on not to put anybody in danger."

The Ocean City Fall Cruisin' crowd is known for being pretty compliant for the most part with police.

Richard said, "Well we still expect to see quite a few people here in town but this crowd tends to be a lot more tame than the H2Oi individuals from last week."

Davis added, "It's pretty tame, yes, never had any problems. Been coming here I would say every 12 years for the May and October, and never had an issue."

If you're in Ocean City this weekend, you can expect to see more cars driving along Coastal Highway. The car show hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

A special guest will be appearing at the car show this weekend! The actor who played Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters, Ernie Hudson, will be inside the Ocean City Convention Center for meet and greets Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be at the Inlet Lot on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m..
