NEW YEAR’S EVE CELEBRATION AND FIREWORKS @ Northside Park
Dec 31 all-day

New Year’s Eve Celebration and Fireworks

The Town of Ocean City will be hosting a New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show at Northside Park to celebrate the beginning of 2020 and the 27th Annual Winterfest of Lights.  The fireworks display, which will begin promptly at midnight, will be accompanied by live entertainment, warm hot chocolate, and the opportunity to ride through the Winterfest of Lights.

Hours for the Winterfest of Lights, which was recently named a prestigious Top 100 Event by American Bus Association and voted “Maryland’s Finest Holiday Tradition” by Maryland Life Magazine, will be extended until midnight.  This family-friendly event will allow visitors to travel through the winter paradise of lights and then listen to music by a local DJ as they wait for the countdown to midnight.

With more than one million holiday lights sparkling throughout Northside Park, the Winterfest of Lights New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show will be a great way to ring in the New Year.
