The 69th annual Halloween Parade sponsored by the Ocean City Exchange Club will start at 7:15 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Oct. 27) rain or shine. The parade travels from 6th Street to 11th Street on Asbury Avenue in Ocean City.
This Ocean City tradition remains one of the longest-running Halloween parades in the Tri-State area. Late entries may register the night of the parade at 6th and Asbury beginning at 6:30 p.m.
There will be eight divisions including decorated floats competing for prizes and trophies. Music will be provided by several high school marching bands and the Original Hobo Band of Pitman, New Jersey. Remember to bring a can of food to the parade. The Boy Scouts are assisting the local Food Cupboard by “Scouting for Food” for those in need. For more information, call the Halloween Hotline at 1-800-813-5580.
