From New Year's Day to MLK weekend and Lunar New Year, January can be a great time for indoor and outdoor activities. Don’t miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in New Jersey this month.

A brand new year brings a brand new roster of warm and cozy post-holiday fun. Escape the cold, and treat the family to live entertainment with performances of Disney On Ice: Into the Magic and Dragons and Mythical Beasts. Or, layer up and brave the outdoors for Maple Sugaring Demonstrations and Mount Holly Fire and Ice Festival.
