It’s the Holiday Season: Stepping out in South Orange

We know — you’re busy. But don’t let the holidays get away from you without taking a moment to soak up the spirit at one of our neighborhood’s many festive events.

We’re particularly looking forward to these (in South Orange, unless otherwise noted):

Thepop-up storecelebrates New Jersey’s 350th. Stop in for gifts specific to the anniversary, one-of-a-kind presents for the historian in your life, and art and jewelry from local artisans. 65 South Orange Ave. 

Hometown Holiday, December 13

Even Santa makes time forthis annual event. Don your complimentary elf hat to take photos with the man himself (free!), follow along the fire truck parade, watch the lighting of the village Christmas tree and enjoy the free concert that follows. Village Center.

Solid Gold Christmas, December 18

Holidays at Glenmont, Through January 4 

An authentic 19th century Christmas is just a short drive away atThomas Edison National Historical Park. See the family’s 1880 Victorian estate, hear stories of their Christmas traditions and visit Edison’s intriguing invention factory. 211 Main St., West Orange.

We hope to see you out at one of these events. There’s something special about experiencing our corner of the world with some glittery lights, festive music and maybe even a dusting of snow. 

Happy holidays from all of us at Third and Valley!
