Friday, December 3, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM


 Ocean City’s annual Christmas Parade travels down Asbury Avenue at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3. Lights, garland, wreaths and bows adorn “The Avenue” for the season, and the parade will bring a variety of bands, floats and other entries to add a little warmth to the winter.

The event gives spectators time to shop and dine on downtown Asbury Avenue before and after the 6 p.m. start time.

The parade starts at Sixth Street and proceeds to 11th Street.

This year’s parade will feature more than 60 entries, including the Ocean City High School Marching Band, the Pleasantville High School Marching Band, and the Absegami High School Marching Braves. Characters from “Frozen” will have their own float. Two cold-air balloons – the Nutcracker and an elf – will be part of the fun. The Upper Township Elementary and Middle School Choir will be part of the parade and sing in front of City Hall at Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue after the event.

As part of the annual tradition, Santa Claus provides a finale to the parade, greeting boys and girls from a horse-drawn carriage.
