Sky Brown, the 11-year-old skateboarding sensation with an international following, will be in Ocean City Aug. 6 to 8 and will be the grand marshal of the 110th annual Ocean City Baby Parade.
 
Sky will meet with fans and give skateboard and surfing demonstrations in addition to participating in the parade.

With a Japanese mother and a British father, Sky chose to compete for Team Great Britain in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, making her the youngest athlete to compete there. She is also Great Britain's youngest Summer Olympian ever, and the youngest Olympic athlete since 1936.
 
Sky began skating and surfing at age two and quickly became a phenomenon when short videos of her gained millions of views on YouTube.  In the fall of 2018, she became the first-ever winner of ABC’s hit competition show, Dancing with the Stars: Juniors. Sky continues to be the youngest athlete a number of brands have ever endorsed, including brands such as, Nike, GoPro, Samsung and more. She hopes to continue making history while inspiring young girls and women across the world to reach for their dreams and become unstoppable.
