For more than 35 years, our quaint little surfing village of Ocean Beach has hosted one of the best Holiday Parades in SoCal. On Saturday, December 5th, Newport Avenue is lined with colorful OBceans and visitors all eagerly awaiting the commencement of the 36th Annual OB Holiday Parade at 5:05pm. This year’s theme is ‘Joy to the Sea – 36 Years Celebrating OB.’
For some, it’s the excitement of seeing the Point Loma Marching Band strut their way down the street or the SD Roller Derby Dolls in their eye-catching costumes. For others, it’s watching the VW Beetle club and classic Woodies roll down Newport Ave. Some prefer the motorcycles, bright-lit floats and countless bands that fill the beach with live music. Whatever your pleasure, OB has it all in our Holiday Parade. And…of course…the big man himself, Santa Claus, will be making his appearance.
After the festivities, the nightlife of OB takes off as the locals and visitors celebrate and spread even more Holiday Cheer in one of OB’s many local, shops, bars, and eateries. People of all ages are invited join us at this fun-filled family event – costumes, cheering and laughter are not only welcomed, they are encouraged!
