For more than 30 years, our quaint little surfing village of Ocean Beach has hosted one of the best Christmas Parades in SoCal. On Saturday, December 6th, Newport Avenue is lined with colorful OBceans and visitors all eagerly awaiting the commencement of the 35th Annual OB Holiday Parade at 5:05pm.

For some, it’s the excitement of seeing the Point Loma Dems and their colorful truck, or the Point Loma Marching Band, 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. 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! Be sure to RSVP and invite all your friends.

More information is available from the OB Town Council website.
