Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey this Weekend, January 5-6, 2019

The debut weekend of 2019 will hit all the right notes with musical festivities and fun. Sing along to Grease on the big screen, or check out The Empire Strikes Back with live music by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Watch talented siblings perform with The Green Planet Band, and enjoy Frozen tunes and special effects at Disney on Ice's Frozen.

If your post-holiday budget is in recovery mode, enjoy weekend events that are totally free. Bring the kids to free storytimes at Barnes & Noble, Word Bookstores and Hoboken Fire Department Museum. Take part in free crafts at Zimmerli Art Museum and Jake Branch County Park.
