2019 Christmas on the Beach

The Town of North Beach kicks off the festive holiday season by Lighting Up the Town on Friday, November 29th, 2019 at 7 pm!  Onlookers gather on the pavilion as we flip the switch to light up the town Christmas tree and holiday displays. 

The NORTH BEACH CHRISTMAS MARKET will be on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 10 am to 3 pm on 5th Street near the boardwalk.  The Annual Pat Carpenter Holiday Parade is the same day beginning at noon.  This festive parade draws spectators from afar!  The boardwalk is lined with hundreds of people viewing the parade.  The best part is when the jolly-old-fat man arrives by fire truck! 

Santa and Mrs. Claus visit with children and give them a special treat.  Tell the kids to bring their wish list to share with Santa!  Warm-up around the campfire as you roast marshmallows!

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
