OB Volunteers make the annual Holiday Parade happen. From OBTC website.

Thursday Nov. 30th Is Last Day to Sign Up

The 38th OB Holiday Parade is coming up this Saturday, December 2nd, and the good folks who put it on – the Ocean Beach Town Council – need you to volunteer to help make it a success.

It’s the only ALL VOLUNTEER RUN parade in the state and the OBTC needs an army of 100+ volunteers to make this epic event happen. Many have already signed up to volunteer this Saturday, but if you haven’t yet registered to volunteer, and you are interested in helping make this parade epic– we need all the help the community can bring.

There are many volunteer opportunities on Saturday– and lots of them allow you to see and participate in the parade!

If you’re interested, please sign up to volunteer here:

The Parade starts at 5:05 pm (OB Time).

All participating volunteers will need to report in to the Ocean Beach Recreation Center, 4726 Santa Monica Ave, Ocean Beach, at 2:00pm sharp on Saturday, December 3rd and check in with the OBTC Volunteer Coordinators.

Each volunteer will be given an official 2017 Ocean Beach Holiday T-Shirt.

If you have any questions please email us at

The OBTC needs to receive your Volunteer Application by November 30th so they can order your official 2017 Ocean Beach Holiday T-Shirt.

Here are descriptions of our parade volunteer positions:

Block Captains: Block Captains are in charge of staging parade entrants in their correct order. The Captains walk with their parade section in the Parade. (6 needed)

Staging Assistants: Staging Assistants help the Block Captains with staging parade entrants. The Staging Assistants walk with their parade section in the Parade. (24 needed)

Security/Crowd Control Volunteers: Security/Crowd Control Volunteers assist with ensuring the event is peaceful and reporting any incidents to our hired team of security professionals. This team volunteers from 4:00-7:00pm. (9 are needed)

Traffic Barricade Guards: Traffic Barricade Guards are stationed in pairs at various traffic barricades before the parade starts to ensure that vehicles do not enter the parade staging route until SDPD Traffic Control units arrive at approximately 4:30pm (16 are needed)

Clean Up Crewmembers: Clean Up Crewmembers provide integral assistance after the parade to pick up debris and recycling and ensure that our streets and community are clean (this is an ideal position for an environmentalist). The crew will be the last entry in the Parade (right behind Santa) and help clean the streets before the street sweepers move-in. (25 are needed)

Extras: Extras are flexible persons that can be assigned to any task
