Doo Dah Parade and Great Egg Hunt on Saturday in Ocean City

 

Philadelphia Flyers legends Jimmy and Joe Watson will be grand marshals for the 2022 Doo Dah Parade in Ocean City on Saturday (April 9).

 

The brothers were both part of the Broad Street Bullies team that won two Stanley Cup titles in the 1970s, and they are both members of the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame. They still live in the Philadelphia area and are a lot of fun when they’re together. They will be available for free photographs and autographs after the parade at the Ocean City Music Pier on the Boardwalk at Moorlyn Terrace.

 

The Doo Dah Parade is Ocean City’s season-opening celebration of all things humorous. The procession features marching bands, floats and a brigade of hundreds of basset hounds. The parade starts at noon Saturday. The route starts at Sixth Street and travels downtown Asbury Avenue to 12th Street, then turns to the Boardwalk at 12th Street and finishes on the boardwalk at Sixth Street.

 

Some highlights will include the Ocean City High School Red Raiders Marching Band, the Hobo Band, the Jersey String Band, Crescent Shriner’s Mini Cars, the Wildwood High School Marching Band and the Atlantic City Fire Department Sandpipers Band. Dietz and Watson returns as the event sponsor.

 

The first of two Great Egg Hunts will return to the Boardwalk as the parade finishes on Saturday. Participating merchants will invite children up to age 7 to visit stores with their families to collect eggs filled with treats and surprises. The event will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. or while supplies last. Flyers will direct families to participating stores. Rain date is April 10. A second Great Egg Hunt is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. April 16.
