FLEMINGTON, NJ –Holiday lights, horse drawn carriages, vintage fire truck rides, visits from Santa and the live music will take center stage in Flemington this month on Thursday nights.
“Thursday Night Holiday Lights” is a program sponsored by Flemington Community Partnership (FCP) with help from dozens of community volunteers and organizations.
“Flemington will be the place to be ... for family fun, a night on the town with friends, and discovering fabulous finds in one of our many unique shops,” said Ann Meredith, director of FCP. “Our business community and volunteers are working together like Santa’s elves to create magical holiday memories while enjoying some of the best shopping, dining, and holiday fun the region has to offer.
Thursday Night Holiday Lights will be held December 7, 14, and 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. on Historic Flemington’s Main Street, Mine Street, Stangl Road and Turntable Junction.
Flemington will be bedecked with decorations and aglow with holiday lighting and hundreds of luminaria that will line the streets of one of the state’s most quaint Victorian-era towns. Dozens of shops, many competing in a borough-wide holiday window decorating contest, are also rolling out the red and green carpet for visitors and shoppers to enjoy.
The Hunterdon Harmonizers, St. Magdalene’s Roman Catholic Church Hispanic Ministries musicians and performers from the Salvation Army will be among the groups delighting visitors with the sounds of the season on the Historic Courthouse steps.
Flemington United Methodist Church will hold a live nativity scene. There will be crafts and games as well — from writing down a wish to include on the community Wishing Tree, to ornament-making, a menorah lighting and dreidel playing.
Many businesses throughout Flemington are extending shopping hours to 8 p.m. and offering an array of activities, special discounts, and treats for shoppers. Below is a snapshot of the fun that Flemington has in store for Thursday Night Holiday Lights. All activities are from 6 to 8 p.m., and free unless otherwise noted.
More activities and events will be added. For additional information and updates, visit the FCP website.
