Santa Claus, shown here greeting children during Sea Isle City's holiday tree lighting ceremony in 2021, is getting ready to ride in a parade.

On Friday, Nov. 25, Mayor Leonard Desiderio will officially welcome the 2022 holiday season by hosting Sea Isle City’s annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony.

The Holiday Parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the Sea Isle City Library, 49th Street and Central Avenue, and will run south on Central to 84th Street, turn east on 84th, and then return north on Landis Avenue to JFK Boulevard (where it will conclude).

After the parade ends at approximately 7 p.m., the mayor and Santa Claus will gather with the community for a Tree Lighting Ceremony at Excursion Park, located at JFK Boulevard and Landis Avenue. There will be caroling, visits with Santa Claus and other festivities.
