The Downtown Ocean City Girls Weekend Fashion Show will return to the Ocean City Yacht Club on Friday, March 24, and tickets are on sale now.
The annual event features the latest spring and summer clothing lines for sale in Ocean City’s retail shops and modeled by local men, women and children.
It includes light fare and refreshments catered by Ocean City restaurants. The Fashion Show kicks off a long weekend of shopping, dining and class activities that highlight all that downtown Ocean City has to offer.
Reigning Miss New Jersey Augostina Mallous will be emcee for the show. Mallous, 20, of Cape May Court House, currently attends Hofstra University, where she majors in journalism and minors in dance.
She began performing at age three when her mother signed her up for dance classes, and she danced competitively for 14 years on Jersey Cape Dance’s Competition Team. Growing up and working in her family’s diner, she learned the value of hospitality and service at a young age, according to a city news release.
Girls Weekend features hotel and bed-and-breakfast packages, dining offers, shopping discounts, prizes, yoga and wellness classes, craft projects and demonstrations at locations throughout Ocean City.
