Christmas is taking over the beach!

Christmas is taking over the beach!

Although Santa’s superhero status is debatable, he has a lot in common with one particular bat-like caped crusader: when the signal is lit, he goes where he’s needed. That’s exactly what seems to have happened now that the Winterfest lights are shining bright; they’re a beacon for all things Christmas, and the holiday has definitely taken Ocean City over.

-Leading the charge in holiday goodness and cheer are the people at The Pour House, who have scheduled Scarves in the Park for this Sunday, Dec. 13th. Join them in Sunset Park at 1pm for some hot cocoa, snacks, and delightful conversation while preparing to get warm and cozy for the rest of Winter. It is their goal to provide Winter supplies (including hats, scarves, gloves, and sleeping bags) to those of our community who need them. The folks at The Pour House will also provide information on “cold weather shelters”, food pantries, and meal services. All are welcome! For more information, contact oceancitystrong@gmail.com.

-The group with perhaps the most festive members has got to be the 5th annual SantaCon, happening Saturday the 12th in Ocean City! Check it out if you’re the spontaneous type. I hear Santa will be there, but no word on Rudolph.

-If you like a little kick to your Christmas, from noon to 10pm on the 12th, Eastern Shore Brewing is having their 4th annual ugly sweater Christmas party! So dig in the deep depths of your closet for that gift from your mother-in-law two Christmases ago, and join the ESB gang on Talbot St for some tacky, just-the-right-amount-of-wacky, holiday fun.

-For those with little ones tagging along, you can join those over at The Salted Cove for a Polar Express dinner and movie night! Going on now until January 2nd, a group of Santa’s elves will serve you and your kids hot cocoa while you watch a quintessential Christmas movie! Santa will take a moment out of his busy, busy December schedule to stop by and visit with each family, which is sure to make memories that’ll last a lifetime.

-Christmas doesn’t stop there – it’s taken over the Ward museum! On December 19th from 10am to 2pm, visit the museum for a seasonal celebration, where you’ll find snacks, crafts, and plenty of entertainment for you and the kids. I hear Santa’s making an appearance here, too. What a popular guy!
