Visit Ocean City’s Winterfest of Lights, located at beautiful Northside Park, 125th Street and the bay. This popular, outdoor event is celebrating its 27th year and will put you in the mood for the holiday season! Board the Winterfest Express and prepare to be whisked into a magical land of spectacular lights. This mile-long journey is accompanied by music that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Sing along while enjoying such displays as the Twelve Days of Christmas, Santa’s Workshop, The Wizard of Oz and an amazing, twinkling Christmas tree. After your ride, visit the Winterfest Pavilion. You can warm up with a hot chocolate while you browse the gift shop. Santa will be available for photos every night through December 23. Winterfest of Lights will also become center stage for Ocean City’s New Year’s Eve celebration including a live DJ, giveaways and fireworks.
