Ocean Way Holiday

Ocean Way Holiday was temporarily moved to Sullivan Park and renamed for this year only (2020) to the "Night of Lights" due to COVID-19.  We hope to bring it back to Ocean Way for the 2021 holiday season where we will have live entertainment, a holiday character show, photos with Santa, a giant interactive snow globe, stilt walkers, and more!  Be sure to check back at a later date for details.
