Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock down Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Maryland on December 7th for the 37th Annual Ocean City Christmas Parade! The parade begins promptly at 11:00 am from Old Landing Road and heading North to 120th Street.
Bundle up in your hats and blankets, and bring your lawn chairs for a day in Ocean City. Be sure to arrive early for optimal parking and to secure your perfect viewing spot. The southbound lanes of Coastal Highway will be closed for the parade, and spectators of the parade can line up their chairs curbside.
Enjoy watching the decorated floats and vehicles playing holiday music as they pass on by. Listen to live music from local artists as they take their moving stage, as well as marching bands and choirs from local schools. See your favorite Ocean City business or non-profit take center stage with a decorated vehicle, the camelids from Diamond State Llama Farm, and even catch sight of the big man himself as Santa Claus passes by!
Following the parade, head to the Carousel Hotel for family-friendly fun and the Parade Awards Presentation! Then enjoy the rest of your day in Ocean City by heading to Northside Park to see the Winterfest of Lights, or to local restaurants for amazing off-season specials!
