The first-ever Bronco Invasion in New Jersey will hit the Ocean City Boardwalk on Saturday, May 13.
Generations of Ford Bronco sport-utility vehicles have been manufactured since 1966, and up to 400 of them will be on display on the Boardwalk from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
The event is free to spectators, and the vehicles will be lined up between Fifth Street and 14th Street after an 11 a.m. parade up to the Boardwalk. Bronco-related vendors will be on hand, and trophies will be awarded to the top Broncos from each generation at 4 p.m.
