This year’s Night in Venice Boat Parade features a new category: The Happy Dance Challenge.
“We normally have a number of entertaining dance entries in the Parade,” said Mark Soifer, Ocean City Public Relations Director. “This Challenge should enliven the Parade even more by tying into the viral Happy Dance sensation.”
The top three entries will be awarded a collector’s item loving cup with a happy face engraved on it.
There will be safety precautions emphasized for dance entrants that will be reviewed at the mandatory Night In Venice boat captain’s meeting. At that meeting, captains will be briefed on safety requirements, including the need for life preserver jackets.
The Night in Venice Boat Parade takes place by the Longport Bridge on Saturday night, July 26, 7:30 p.m.
All boat owners who participate in the Parade will be given a $50 decoration card, a free photo of their boat in the Parade and a commemorative mug featuring this year’s suggested theme, “Night at the Oscars.”
There will also be prizes for best decorated Bay Front Homes.
Boat categories will include:
· Most Original;
· Best Decorated;
· Classic (25 years or older with historic value); and
· Children’s Division completely decorated by children 15 and under.)
Boat and Bay Front home participants may enter on line by visiting www.ocnj.us/NIV.
