The Ocean City Christmas Parade continues the 35 year tradition started by Gold Coast Mall. Mark your calendars for December 3rd, bring your chairs, blankets and plan for a day in Ocean City! Arrive early to park and get your viewing spot. The parade will feature more than 50 units, including high school bands, antique cars, colorful holiday floats, horses and more. The parade begins promptly at 11:00am with an extended route from Old Landing Road north to 120th Street. The southbound lanes of Coastal highway are closed for the parade in that general area allowing spectators to gather curbside. Pedestrians will not be allowed to watch the parade from the median on Coastal Highway.
