As I just posted a story on the best family skating rinks in the country (Nov 18 blog), I just learned that our nearby charming downtown district of Red Bank will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland for a day with an ice skating rink, a life-size Snow Globe, and lots of outdoor fun including a scavenger hunt and holiday bazaar.
There will be a synthetic ice skating rink where you can skate across Broad Street between White and Monmouth Streets. Also, there will be a 15-foot snow globe in which you and your family and friends can step inside and get a picture taken from the outside. All this is free except skate rentals ($10 adults, $5 children).
You can go on a festive adventure around town by completing a holiday word hunt puzzle which will feature a poem that can only be solved by searching for words from the retail shop windows. Of course, you can always holiday shop and get your seasonal gifts, crafts, ornaments, and more at the Holiday Bazaar on Wallace Street and also at the wonderful local businesses. Lastly, there will be plenty of delicious food available from the town’s 80+ eateries and restaurants.
So get into the holiday spirit and come out and enjoy some fun-filled holiday traditions!
