The holiday season is such a special and unique time of year, and is often filled with enjoying time with family and friends. Whether it’s cutting down a Christmas tree at the local tree farm or hunting for deals on Black Friday, we all have traditions that we grew up with and some that we continue with our own families. This year, wouldn’t it be fun to start a new tradition? It might end up being one that your children and grandchildren carry on for years to come. If you’re looking for something new to enjoy with friends and family this holiday season, Value Van and Car Rental recommends these events happening in the New Jersey area.
1. Feasting with Family & Friends: Christmas at the Ballantine House
This unique event is held at the Newark Museum and runs through January 6th, so you have some extra time if you can’t squeeze it in before Christmas. Learn about life and Christmas traditions in the 19th-century, and see how these have evolved into the traditions we practice today.
2. Skylands Christmas Light Show & Village
Rent a van and pack in your friends and family for this drive-thru Christmas lights display that you’ll remember all year long. After your light show experience, you can stop at the free Christmas Village to see Santa, play games, and enjoy some festive treats. This event is held at the Skylands Stadium in Augusta, NJ, and runs through December 30th.
3. Holiday Lights Spectacular
Who said the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, NJ, can only be enjoyed in warm weather? The lights exhibit is a “can’t miss” event that the whole family will enjoy! It runs every night through December 31st (except December 24-25). You’ll be able to enjoy the holiday lights as well as some of the indoor animal exhibits. This event is free but a donations of non-perishable food items, new toys, and gently-used coats are very much appreciated.
