It’s a free, heartwarming experience that’ll fill their hearts with joy and anticipation!

Live Holiday Music

Experience the enchantment of the season with live holiday music during both weekends of the Christmas Carnival. Immerse yourself in the festive melodies that will fill the air, making your visit even more magical and memorable!

Dec 2: Salisbury Children’s Choir will offer roaming caroling at 1pm and a performance of Christmas music at 3pm.

Silent Auction at Trimper Rides

To further the giving spirit of the event and the holiday season, decorated Christmas trees and wreaths will be raffled off with proceeds going to OCDC. Trees and wreaths donated by Electrical Integrity and decorated by local business!

Winners can take home these decorated trees and wreaths, along with the prizes attached! We’ve got donations from local businesses such as, Crawl Street Tavern and Ocean Pines Chamber!
