Holiday Happenings in Long Branch

November 25, 2013

Around here we say… come for the turkey, stay for the lights!

Thanksgiving is upon up and that means many family gatherings are taking place in Long Branch. The town is beautiful this time of year, cool and crisp, with plenty to see and do. Come December 1st, Pier Village kicks off its holiday season in style, with the annual tree lighting and the unveiling of its authentic carousel.

Complimentary hot chocolate makes the rounds as the sing along helps to count down the tree lighting. And of course, no holiday season would be complete without a visit from Santa. So get your lists ready, grab your family, and get yourself to the pier! Rumor has it — Santa will have his sleigh!

Stick around — on December 2nd the largest annual Menorah lighting will be underway.

For a full schedule of activities, directions, and other details visit the Pier Village website.
