Saturday - November 16th, 2019

It's that most wonderful time of the year as Great Adventure kicks off Holiday in the Park for the 2019 season.  Now in its fifth year, the festive winter event continues to dress up the park in what has become traditional colorful lights and decorations while also changing and adding several new offerings keeping things fresh and fun. 

Here are some photos captured during daylight hours on the opening day of Holiday in the Park which offered clear blue skies and sunshine and seasonally appropriate temps.  Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings!
