For over 30 years, our quaint little surfing village of Ocean Beach, or OB to those in the know, has hosted one of the best Christmas Parades in SoCal. Starting around 5:05 pm on Saturday, December 6, Newport Avenue is lined with colorful OBceans and visitors all eagerly awaiting the awe-inspiring big event. For some, it’s the excitement of seeing the local yoga studio performing rubber band like moves as they make their way down the street or the roller derby girls in their eye-catching costumes. For others, it’s watching the VW Beetle club and classic Woodies roll down Newport Ave. Some even prefer the motorcycles, bright lit floats and countless bands that fill the beach with live music. So, in other words, whatever your pleasure, OB has it all in our rendition of the Christmas March. 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 the many local bars and eateries.

People of all ages are invited join us at this fun-filled event – costumes, cheering and laughter are not only welcomed, they are encouraged!

Come find out what the locals have known for over 30 years – Santa would rather be in OB!
