Fireworks Planned For New Year’s Eve

OCEAN CITY — Ocean City will be hosting a New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show at Northside Park to celebrate the beginning of 2013 and the 20th Annual Winterfest of Lights.

The fireworks display, which will begin promptly at midnight, will be accompanied by live entertainment, warm hot chocolate, and the opportunity to ride the Winterfest of Lights.

Hours for the Winterfest of Lights, which was recently named a prestigious Top 100 Event by American Bus Association and voted “Maryland’s Finest Holiday Tradition” by Maryland Life Magazine, will be extended until midnight.  

This family-friendly event will allow visitors to travel through the winter paradise of lights and then listen to music by “DJ Kutt” as they wait for the countdown to midnight.  

“What better way for families to celebrate the New Year and the 20th Annual Winterfest of Lights than a fireworks show,” said Mayor Rick Meehan.  “The fireworks show is free for everyone and will be an exciting, and affordable way, for people of all ages to ring in the New Year in Ocean City.”
