Get in your pajamas, or keep them on from the night before. Ocean City’s “Earlier than the Bird” shopping extravaganza takes place this Saturday.

The event takes place from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday on Asbury Avenue between 6th and 11th streets. Wearing pajamas is optional. But free turkeys will be awarded to the best-dressed, and shoppers can text in to win gift certificates and prizes from downtown merchants.

Free coffee will be available at Jon & Patty’s (637 Asbury Avenue), Ocean City Coffee Company (917 Asbury Avenue) and Starbucks (1061 Asbury Avenue). Shoppers also can enjoy a free standard doughnut at Drip ‘N’ Scoop (960 Asbury Avenue).
