Only one week left until Christmas! Keep the kids busy with free festivals like the Kwanzaa Festival at NJPAC with everything from dance classes to crafts, or the free Maplewood Dickens Village Holiday Event with a petting zoo, face painting, horse and wagon rides and holiday crafts. Grinch lovers can enjoy a Whoville Feast at Liberty Hall Museum with real Roast Beast. Santa will also be making an early appearance at local ice skating rinks in West Windsor, Roselle, Secaucus and Jersey City. Finally, check out some holiday lights, either the old fashioned kind in the form of a candlelight tour of the Historic Allaire Village, or the more modern kind at the Turtleback zoo and the Planetarium.
