On Saturday 12/5/15, the Ocean City Christmas Parade starts at 11:00 am at 100th Street and will travel north to Gold Coast Mall, so streets in North Ocean City will be blocked to traffic. Anyone attending the 4th Step workshop should plan on arriving before 10:30 am or after 12:15 pm. Those traveling from points north of the parade will need to arrive by 10:00 am when streets to the north will be closed. Those traveling from points south (Rte 50) or west (Rte 90) will need to tell the traffic police at 100th Street that they are attending a workshop at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at 103rd Street. They will be diverted into the usual southbound lane but travel north and turn left into the St. Peter’s parking lot. Parking will be limited until the parade is over because 1/6 of the lot will be used as a staging area for the Ocean City Elementary School float in the parade. Bottom Line: ARRIVE EARLY!
