OC CHRISTMAS PARADE @ Coastal hwy
Dec 7 all-day

OC CHRISTMAS PARADE
TIS THE SEASON!  THE 37TH ANNUAL OCEAN CITY CHRISTMAS PARADE MARCHES ALONG COASTAL HWY. ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019.

The holiday parade starts at 11AM on Old Landing Rd. and marches northbound in the southbound lanes of Coastal Hwy. to the judges’ stand at 120th St.  

The event will feature more than 50 units, including high school bands, horses, antique cars, colorful holiday floats, and more.

Professional judges will review bands and other units in nine categories, with trophies being awarded inside the Carousel Hotel following the parade.  The awards presentation is part of a post-parade reception hosted by the Carousel Hotel, bringing additional family fun for participants and patrons alike.  Festivities at the hotel will begin immediately after the parade conclusion and will include half-priced ice skating, a DJ playing continuous holiday music and fee photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus.  In addition, complementary winter refreshments will be available.

To participate in the Ocean City Christmas Parade, which is coordinated by the Town of Ocean City, registrants should contact the Special Events Dept. at 410-250-0125.  There is no charge to participate.  For those wishing to view the parade, plenty of seating will be available along the west side of the half-mile parade route, including the Food Lion parking lot and judging area.

Spectators will not be permitted to watch the parade from the median area of Coastal Hwy.  Motorists are reminded that traffic pattern changes will begin approximately 8am and traffic congestion and delays should be expected.  Also, due to the high volume of pedestrian traffic, everyone is reminded to Walk Smart by using crosswalks and crossing with the traffic control signal.

For more information, contact Brenda Moore at 410-250-0125 or [email protected]
