About the Event
Parade is scheduled for 10:30 am Thursday, August 12th. Participants should check in at the Sports and Civic Center, located at 6th Street and the Boardwalk by 10:00 a.m. Pre-registration is open through noon on Wednesday, August 11.
All families with children ages 10 and under are invited to participate. Bands, performing groups and commercial floats are also encouraged to join in the fun. Registration and information are available online at ocnj.us/babyparade or in-person at the Welcome Center on the ground floor of City Hall at Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue.
The Baby Parade is free to watch from either side of the boardwalk between Sixth Street and 12th Street. Spectators are welcome to bring beach chairs to watch from the railing along the ocean side of the boardwalk. The Baby Parade entries will stop at 12th Street, while other parade participants will continue to 14th Street.
Each child receives a memento at 12th Street for participating in the parade, and winners will receive their awards when they complete the parade at 12th Street.
In the event of heavy rain, entries should still report to the Civic Center where judging will take place. The parade will not proceed down the Boardwalk.
