Ready or not, here comes the holiday season!
This month, celebrate Thanksgiving the old-fashioned way at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm and the Historic Village at Allaire. And it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, with the start of holiday train rides and holiday light shows like the ones at Skylands Stadium and Turtle Back Zoo. Santa Claus is coming to town, too, with celebrations of his arrival at Storybook Land and Camden Children's Garden.
November is also packed with exciting live performances, including Disney on Ice, Annie, and the National Acrobats and Martial Artists of China, as well as holiday shows like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical and A Charlie Brown Christmas Live On Stage. Beloved annual traditions return for another year, including the Mermaids at Adventure Aquarium and the 60th annual Model Railroad Show in North Haledon. And if you're looking for a New York City day trip, don't miss Play Fair at the Javits Center November 4-5.
