Families in Ocean City, NJ trying to find the bright side to gloomy Memorial Day weekend


It’s been a cold and gloomy weekend down at the Jersey shore this Memorial Day weekend.

While there were some surfers riding the waves, there weren’t many people out on the sand.

“It hasn’t been the best with the weather, but this definitely made it better with the good waves,” said Andrew Craft, a surfer from Plymouth Meeting.

Out on the boardwalk, many families were bundled up. Some said they decided to take a day trip.

“It’s better than sitting in the house in this weather,” said Andre Harrison of Mount Airy.

Indoor rides are open for children, which has been a great way to have fun while dodging the rain. Some families were trying to find the bright side to this special day.

“It is my 40th birthday, so my family treated me for the day because we vacation here for the summertime,” said Christine Minker of Elkton, Maryland.

Others said they made it a point to come to Ocean City for the boardwalk food.

“The food here is just amazing,” said Kelly Marroquan of Atlantic City.
