One of the all-time great Philadelphia Eagles will be in Ocean City for the 69th annual Night in Venice boat parade on July 20. The annual Night in Venice Boat Parade is Ocean City's premier event of the summer, drawing thousands of spectators to watch the boat parade.  People along the back bay of Ocean City decorate their homes and many others attend private parties at homes along the bay.

For the 2024 event, 15-year Eagles veteran Brandon Graham and his family will be on hand.  Graham was the Eagles first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Michigan and is responsible for the most important play in the history of the franchise, the strip sack of Tom Brady in the teams only Super Bowl win.

“Brandon represents everything that Philly fans love, and it’s a great honor to have the Grahams join us,” Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian said in a press release. “They’ll get a warm welcome from everybody in Ocean City.”


It was announced bac in April that the theme for this years parade will be "Summertime Vibes: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett".

“A tribute to Jimmy Buffett is perfect for our summertime event,” Mayor Gillian said. “I’m excited to work with Dave and the committee to make this year’s event better than ever.”


The annual boat parade is one of the highlights of the summer in Ocean City, with thousands of locals and visitors watching different decorated boats on the back bay from the Ocean City-Longport Bridge to Tennessee Avenue.

It was also announced that ESPN reporter Marty Smith will be grand marshal for this years parade.

Here's Jason Kelce's $2.2 Million Beach House in Sea Isle City, New Jersey

Ever since Jason Kelce made his emotional retirement announcement, the former Eagles Center has embraced the post-football life. Having grown up in Ohio and playing College Football at the University of Cincinnati, some would think Jason Kelce would spend his post-career years back at home, but he has chosen to live in New Jersey.

Thanks to his wife Kylie growing up in the Suburban Philadelphia area and playing his entire NFL career for the Eagles, Jason Kelce has now planted his life here in Eagles Country. After vacationing in Sea Isle City for years, the Kelces have purchased a Beach House in South Jersey. Makes sense considering Sea Isle City is one of the 50 Best Places to Retire in New Jersey and one of the best towns to live in Cape May County.
