Martin Z. Mollusk Day

Martin Z. Mollusk Day
Saturday, May 8, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Ocean City’s hermit-crab mascot will seek his shadow in a local version of Groundhog Day at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 8, on the beach next to the Music Pier (between Moorlyn Terrace and Ninth Street). Martin Z. Mollusk has successfully predicted an early summer every year for more than four decades (sometimes, of course, with the creative use of flashlights by his handlers).

Martin’s prediction this year will be more important than ever, because we know everybody is anxious for the arrival of summer after a year of so many sacrifices.

The Martin Z. Mollusk Day program also will include the life-sized Martin Z. and Mollie Mollusk mascots. Together, the Mollusks make up the first family of “America’s Greatest Family Resort.”

The winners of the 2021 Martin Z. Mollusk Coloring Contest will be honored and their artwork unveiled to the public.
