Holiday Fun for the Entire Family

 Lights, Santa, Train Rides, and more....
Where to Find Holiday Happenings this Weekend

The Holiday fun continues this weekend! The Christmas Express with Santa Claus is chugging along at the NJ Museum of Transportation - join Santa on a beautifully decorated train for an afternoon or evening train ride (tickets required). In Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Zoo has been transformed into 'Zoo Noel' - embark on a scavenger hunt and discover Santa Claus as he explores different parts of the world. There will also be hands on activities and crafts, and pictures with Santa. Holiday lights are twinkling at the Ground for Sculpture, Turtle Back Zoo and in the Victorian town of Cape May. And if you're interested in catching a show, Angelina is pirouetting into the BergenPAC and in NYC, Ralphie and the Gang are back in the holiday tradition, 'A Christmas Story' at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. As always, this is just the tip of the iceberg! For more great ideas, check out our website at
