It served to draw thousands of people to the Boardwalk forming one of the greatest throngs ever seen there, and the parade pleased all.”The article included a picture of the award-winning twins, Lee and Stanley Heist, who were dressed as Ocean City lifeguards (see image above).The 106th annual Baby Parade will be held August 13 on the Boardwalk from Sixth Street to 12th Street.
