Ocean City Christmas Parade Set For Saturday

OCEAN CITY — The 34th Annual Ocean City Christmas Parade will march along Coastal Highway on Saturday, Dec. 3.

The holiday parade starts at 11 a.m. on Old Landing Road and marches northbound in the southbound lanes of Coastal Highway to the judges’ stand at 120th Street. The event will feature more than 50 units, including high school bands, horses, antique cars, colorful holiday floats and more.

“This is the second year in the parade’s three decade history that the Town of Ocean is coordinating the event,” said Ocean City Special Events Director Frank Miller. “This is a historic holiday tradition and the Town of Ocean City is thrilled to continue a custom that is loved by so many.”

WBOC television anchors Maxine Bentzel and Chris Weimer return as the Masters of Ceremony, providing a play by play of the parade for spectators. Professional judges will review bands and other units in nine categories, with trophies being awarded inside the Carousel Hotel following the parade.
