The Holiday Season in Red Bank
The holiday season is a beautiful time to be in Red Bank NJ. Twinkle lights and wreaths light up the trees and lampposts lining Broad Street. The coffee shops of Red Bank are fragrant with the smells of peppermint, cinnamon, and gingerbread. The words “Peace on Earth” in sparkling tinsel hanging over the streets wish passerby well as they shop for presents and enjoy all that the holiday season in Red Bank has to offer.
While the days after Thanksgiving go by quickly in a blur of holiday shopping, gatherings, and tying up loose ends before the new year, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy some great holiday events in Red Bank that are fun for the whole family.

Red Bank’s 12 Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt
