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: Let's Celebrate, Animaniacs in Concert, and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! Or, layer up and brave the outdoors for a Winter Festival Bonfire & Fireworks in Warren and Mount Holly's Fire & Ice Festival.

Find more January and cold-weather fun in our Winter Guide, including these 20 winter day trips in New Jersey.
