Since 1955. Night in Venice is a traditional highlight of the summer season in Ocean City — with thousands of spectators lining the bayfront and thousands more attending private parties at homes along the route from the Ocean City-Longport Bridge to Tennessee Avenue. Colorful parade features more than 100 decorated boats and 300 decorated bayfront homes. Night in Venice starts at the Longport Bridge to Tennessee Avenue along the bay. Come out and feast on some of the best seafood in the area and enjoy entertainment and rides for the kids. A fireworks display will cap off Ocean City’s Night in Venice boat and bayfront celebration this year.
