Ocean City, Maryland may be the premier vacation resort on the East Coast during the summer, but each winter it transforms into an award-winning holiday wonderland with the annual Winterfest of Lights. This award-winning, annual celebration of the holiday season sees Ocean City covered with over 1,000,000 Christmas bulbs. The hundreds of animated displays at Northside Park on 125th Street are the main attraction, but businesses and residents all over town join the fun with mesmerizing lights of their own. Entry to Winterfest at Northside Park costs $5 (kids under 11 are free!), which includes a trip along the Winterfest Express, and also gives you a chance to relax and sip hot chocolate in the heated Winterfest Village pavilion, browse the Yukon Cornelius gift shop, or have your photo taken with Santa.
If you want to celebrate Winterfest in Ocean City, make the most of your trip by checking out discounted packages at Ocean City hotels, many of which include luxurious accommodations, dinner at local restaurants, and tickets to the eye-popping extravaganza.
The 2015 edition of Winterfest will take place November 20- January 4 and hours are:
