The coronavirus changed how municipalities celebrated the holidays, with the traditional large public gatherings canceled. In Ocean Ridge, the town spread Christmas cheer with a parade featuring Santa Claus, replacing the usual indoor event.

Golf carts loaded with Santa and his wife, and with town commissioners and the mayor dressed as elves, dispensed candy canes and dog treats. They received a police escort as they ventured down every street in Ocean Ridge and Briny Breezes.
