Christmas is taking over the beach!

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

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 annual SantaCon, happening the second Saturday in December! Check it out if you’re the spontaneous type. I hear Santa will be there, but no word on Rudolph.

-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!
