Night In Venice




The 63rd annual Night in Venice is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, July 22, 2017.

The boat parade and decorated bayfront home contest provides a chance to be part of the highlight of the summer season in Ocean City. Thousands of spectators line the bayfront, and thousands more attending private parties at homes along the route from the Ocean City-Longport Bridge to Tennessee Avenue.

This year, a spectacular fireworks display returns to cap off the bayfront celebration. The optional theme will be "Rockin' Through the Decades," a celebration of music, fashion and culture on the rolling waters of the bay. The weekend celebration also will include a concert by Gloria Gaynor with the Ocean City Pops on Sunday, July 23. This year's Night in Venice features lead sponsor ACME, your favorite local supermarket.

Boat owners receive a complimentary photo of their boat in the parade and a commemorative mug. 

Entries for boats and homes will be taken through the online forms below or by calling 609-399-6111.

Please contact Event Coordinator Michael Hartman at 609-525-9284 if you’re an owner willing to enter your boat to host dignitaries, special guests or other entries (but don’t have the time to decorate).
