Ocean City's events will make the Eastern Shore's holiday season the best ever.

Ocean City often pulls off events like no one else on the Eastern Shore can. Here are three ways Ocean City is helping us celebrate the holidays!

Winterfest of Lights

WHEN: November 15–December 31
WHERE: 125th Street (Bayside)

We're giving you fair warning: With more than one million holiday lights and hundreds of animated light displays filling up 125th Street, you might need to shield your eyes as you go through Ocean City in mid-November. And if that wasn't enough, there'll be a Winterfest Village Pavillion, a Winterfest Express, and a 50-foot Christmas tree there, too.


Holiday Shoppers Fair

WHEN: November 23-25 | Fri/Sat: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. | Sun.: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
WHERE: OC Convention Center
CONTACT: Click here or call 410-723-8605

Arm yourselves with $3 (for admission) and your lengthy Christmas list, and head to the Holiday Shoppers Fair to find gifts that'll be more unique than anything you'll find anywhere else. Sift through handmade merchandise, nautical-themed items, candles, photography, and more! And Santa will be coming to town, too, if you have some little elves that need to be occupied!

Ocean City is renowned for its parades, so you definitely don't want to miss the Christmas parade. Bundle up and see over 50 units, like high school bands, holiday floats, vintage cars, and others march up Ocean City, all decked out with the holiday spirit. And if you're a part of the parade and put your blood, sweat, and tears into a float, the Carousel Hotel is rewarding participants at a post-parade party!
