Southport Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce
Christmas is perhaps the best time of year to visit the North Carolina coast. The average air temperature is 59.4 degrees and the sun is warm. In a celebration of this wonderful weather and the holidays, the Chamber organizes the Christmas by the Sea Parade, the first Saturday in December on Oak Island. The parade steps off at 2pm on the 2.4 mile parade route from Oak Island Town Hall, traveling Oak Island Drive to McGlamery Street. The parade showcases the businesses and organizations in our community. The hometown feel of the parade makes it a favorite event of locals, second homeowners and visitors.
A float decorating contest will be held. Floats will be judged on criteria: color, theme, overall beauty and originality will be judged separately. An Overall Judges Award will be given. There will also be 1st and 2nd places awarded in the following categories: Group/Club/Non Profit, For Profit and Golf Cart Division. Judging will begin at 12:30pm. We will not judge commercially rented floats. To Enter a unit in the parade go to: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=x5wxt6bab&oeidk=a07ef1n65yi79014b68
