Ring In The New Year With Our OCNJ Community

Ring In The New Year With Our OCNJ Community

New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are two special occasions in which we mark the transition over to new possibilities, new opportunities, and a new life. As such, there are so many ways to celebrate, and Ocean City, New Jersey is no stranger to helping residents and visitors start off the new year right. But what do we have to look forward to in 2023? If you're considering staying in Ocean City for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, let's take a look at some of the exciting events that will help you ring in the new year with our OCNJ community.

First Night Activities

OCNJ celebrates New Year's Eve with an event called First Night, which offers a ton of activities and events for you to enjoy. If you're looking to make the most of New Year's Eve, let's take a look at some of the First Night activities that you should consider checking out.

  • Live Music Events: In OCNJ, you won't have to travel far in order to get some live music in your life. Some of the groups that will be playing around OCNJ during First Night include The Trammps, The Philly Keys, The Beach Strums, and even some cover groups that you might be interested in!
  • Activities for the Whole Family: There are plenty of family-friendly activities in OCNJ to participate in that everyone can enjoy. No matter how old your children are, some of the top family activities to look forward to at First Night include Disney’s Imagination Movers, plenty of inflatable rides and activities, ice skating, Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, and the Ocean City Historical Museum open house.
  • Special Performances: Live music isn't the only type of live entertainment that you can look forward to if you plan on attending First Night in OCNJ. In fact, there are a host of live performances that are going to be taking place on New Year's Eve. Some of the special performances that many are looking forward to include the Harlem Wizards, the illusionist Anthony Salazar, the mentalist Dan Cain, the magician Chad Juros, and the ventriloquist John Pizzi.
  • Other Exciting Events: It's very hard to narrow down all the events into categories given how much is going on in OCNJ during First Night. Some of the other events and activities that you might want to look into include a fireworks display (which will naturally occur right on the cusp of New Year's Day), a karaoke party, country line dancing, and a Quizzo live team trivia.

No matter what appeals to you, there will certainly be something to do in OCNJ at First Night!

First Day

Following in the wake of an exciting First Night, First Day is much quieter and more relaxed, but there are still things to do if you're up and ready to get started on your "new year, new you". Some of the events that take place during First Day include the annual boardwalk 5k, which is a race and is for those who are ready to start their fitness goals immediately following First Night (although you can keep a leisurely pace if you aren't looking to win any of the awards that they're giving out). If that doesn't appeal to you, you can try the Beach Polar Plunge, where you don a swimsuit and jump into the freezing waves of the beach, traveling out as far as you dare.
