The Ocean Pines 50th Anniversary Parade and Community Day will happen as planned despite the forecast for this weekend.
50th Anniversary Parade in Ocean Pines, Open to the Public

The parade staging area is the road leading to the Worcester County Wastewater Plant where parade entries only will be directed by Ocean Pines Police Officers and our Neighborhood Watch Volunteers. Parade registration deadline is Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
Remember that Ocean Parkway will be closed northbound from Mumford’s Landing Road to St Martin’s Lane (approx. 2.5 miles) from 9:45 am until the parade ends.
