I've always dreamed of having fun backyard birthday parties complete with bounce houses, pony rides and an ice cream man, but alas, I have only winter babies whose party options are limited and always in danger of being canceled due to weather. Last February we told you about fun winter birthday parties for New Jersey children but here are 5 more options to add to our Birthday Party Guide, plus a brand new sneak peek venue!
Alstede Farms (Chester, NJ)
Well known for its harvest and Halloween activities, Alstede offers winter birthday options. Inside their heated tent, you can have bounce houses, pony rides and more. If you have a theme in mind (perhaps a hot chocoate bar?), they will work with you! Contact Alicia at email@example.com to plan your party at Alstede.
