RED BANK, NJ:  A little chill in the air added to the enthusiasm of kids and parents alike as they took part in Winter on Broad Street.

“Red Bank’s wonderful business community really shines during the holiday season,” said James Scavone, Executive Director of Red Bank RiverCenter.  “Red Bank’s Christmas tree and menorah are at home in Riverside Gardens Park with a beautiful view of the Navesink River. We want people to visit Red Bank, shop local, eat local, and enjoy our magnificent downtown.”

A skating rink was set up on Broad Street where folks either rented or brought their own skates.  Around and around they went, some pretty graceful, several a little shaky, but all had smiles on their faces.

A new event this year was very cool – A sidewalk chalk art contest.  A 3-foot square on Wallace Street acted as their personal “canvas” where the artists painted and competed for the best holiday or seasonal designs.  Winners took home Red Bank gift cards and other prizes.

Back by popular demand was the life-sized Snow Globe.  Kids jumped around while parents and friends took pictures as “snow” fell around them.

Be sure to check out the carousel of pictures of the sidewalk chalk art and the families who came to town.
