Ocean City Winterfest of Lights
Ocean City puts on a really nice holiday lights show each year. It’s held at Northside Park, 125th Street and Bay. That’s up in the north end of Ocean City and on the Bayside. The light show features elaborate displays with a variety of themes. The water in the park is used to nice effect and in some places the light displays reflect very prettily off the water.
The Ocean City boardwalk tram becomes the Winterfest Express tram for the holidays and it takes visitors around the park to see the lights. When you’re done, they drop you off in the Winterfest Village where you can do a little shopping in the gift shop, buy a cup of hot chocolate, or visit to Santa Claus.
Bring you camera to capture some nice photos of the lights, and be sure to dress warmly, it can get cold on the tram ride. A blanket to put over your legs is a good idea.
2013 Admission is $5 for everyone 12 years of age and over. Kids 11 and under get in free.
