Looking for the best things to do in New Jersey this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

Bundle up for an icy final weekend of January—and we're not just talking about the temps! Our top weekend things to do features two FREE ice-centric events. Enjoy ice carving with a side of chili at Mount Holly's Fire & Ice Festival, and take part in an old-fashioned ice harvest at the Howell Living History Farm. Have more fresh-air fun at Terhune Orchards while wassailing the apple trees and enjoy Long Branch's seashore open house.

You can enjoy a taste of summer by planning a visit to one of these indoor water parks near New Jersey, or find more cold-weather activities on our winter fun list. The flakes just might fly, so do double-check that all events are on before heading out and keep these lists of snow day boredom busters and the best sledding hills in New Jersey handy.

Be sure to check with each venue for its COVID guidelines and requirements before heading out to any event; some events are getting canceled or postponed at the last minute due to the latest COVID surge, so always confirm details before departing.
