The event had been scheduled for Sunday, May 5 and now will be held 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 11. Chica de Maya encourages girls of all ages and abilities to learn to skate, show off their talents, and participate in a bowl jam, mini jam, giveaways, crafts and more.

Entry fee is $5 for male and female skaters of all ages and another $5 to enter the Bowl Jam Skate Contest (with prizes to the winners). Lights will be provided by the Ocean City Fire Department, music by DJ Bill and snacks and drinks by St. Peter’s United Methodist Church.
