Ocean City’s Old Fashioned Downtown Christmas, the island’s version of “Black Friday,” takes place on Friday, November 24. Christmas in the Downtown – “Our Miracle on Asbury Avenue” – will be celebrated from 2-5pm. The event features carolers and performers along downtown Asbury Avenue between Sixth Street and 14th Street.
Downtown shops will offer discount shopping for gifts, and many Asbury Avenue restaurants will be open. Free horse-and-carriage rides will be available noon to 3pm with boarding at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue. Santa will visit with children 1-3pm at Mark Soifer Park (Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue). Entertainment and Christmas carols will begin at 4pm on the steps of City Hall at Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue.
Ocean City’s Old-Fashioned Downtown Christmas event culminates around 5pm when Santa Claus will emerge on the rooftop of City Hall. With the help of an Ocean City Fire Department ladder truck, Santa will descend and help light the Christmas Tree and illuminate City Hall.
The shopping discounts will continue on November 25 as downtown merchants celebrate Small Business Saturday.
