The 2014 Dew Tour will return to Ocean City for the fourth consecutive year, organizers announced Monday.
While the remainder of the schedule has yet to be announced, the Ocean City event, scheduled to run from June 25-29, will kick off the 10th incarnation of the Dew Tour.
“The continued support of the city for the past three years sets us up for an exciting return to Ocean City during our 10th Anniversary season,” Eric Grilly, President of Alli Sports, which operates the tour, said in a news release. “Working with the Mayor’s office, city council and all of the city departments, we have seen record attendance year after year, and enjoy creating an event that is influenced both by the physical environment of the beach and the action sports culture in the area.”
The 2013 event brought an estimated 103,000 spectators to see athletes compete in events ranging from BMX to skateboarding to surfing and generated roughly $11.5 million in revenue for the city and state.
"We are thrilled to once again play host to the Dew Tour and welcome the amazing athletes to our beach,” Ocean City mayor Rick Meehan said in the news release. “Each year this event gets better and better and we are looking forward to a fantastic 2014 Dew Tour in Ocean City."For more information, visit www.DewTour.com.
