A tradition reborn! The 2nd Annual Atlantic City Christmas Parade takes place Saturday, and we've got all the details!

The festivities start at 3 p.m. on the Atlantic City Boardwalk at Rhode Island Avenue (by Ocean Resort) and continue down passed Tropicana Casino & Resort at Brighton Ave., ultimately ending at Albany Ave.

More than 80 organizations are expected to participate, including dance teams, marching bands, and more! Of course, no Christmas parade would be complete without Santa Claus, and he'll be there too!

The parade will be hosted by some familiar faces! Anchor Michelle Dawn Mooney and meteorologist 'Noreaster' Nick Pittman from SNJ Today, and our own Heather DeLuca will be at Kennedy Plaza just outside Boardwalk Hall announcing all the parade action.

The parade's Grand Marshall will be Atlantic City police officer Josh Vadell, who was seriously injured in the line of duty in 2016.

Several New Jersey title holders, like reigning Miss New Jersey Jaime Gialloreto will appear in the parade as well.

You can view the entire Atlantic City Christmas Parade here on our website! Just come back to this page on Saturday, Dec. 8th at 3pm!

Bundle up! It's expected to be a mostly sunny afternoon, but chilly, with hi's in the mid 30s.

Then, from 4-6pm, there will be after-parties at Bass Pro Shops in Atlantic City (where kids can come and visit with The Big Man in Red) and at Tropicana Casino & Resort.

We hope to see you there!
