Ocean City's annual Night in Venice parade will take place Saturday night with the classic theme of "Good Old Summertime."

The nostalgic theme is designed to give boaters and homeowners plenty of flexibility when decorating their properties for the competitions.

The 59th annual boat parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the Longport bridge with WPVI-TV Channel 6 meteorologist Adam Joseph serving as the grand marshal.

The city will set up grandstand seating at the street ends or people can buy tickets to view the parade from the Bayside Center at Fifth and Bay avenues. Admission for children 12 and under is $3 and adults are $7.
