Your favorite "floats" from the classic OB Holiday Parade will be setup in the Dog Beach Parking Lot for you and your family to drive through and view from the comfort (and safety) of your vehicle. Plus - you are welcome to decorate your vehicle to get in on the action!
Santa will be making an appearance and there will be a mailbox to drop letters to Santa (Santa's elves might just write back!).
Reservations will be required and a limited number of vehicles will be permitted. Open-air Trolley rides through the parade will also be offered (limited riders on each trolley, safety protocols enforced).
You are also the judge of the parade this year! As you drive through the parade you'll cast your ballot for: Best Overall, Best Use of Lights, Best OB Spirit, Best Use of Theme, and Most Unusual.
Check back soon and follow us on social media to be the first to know when reservations go live!
