There is a Christmas light show that has become something of a Jersey Shore tradition that returns this year, but then changes address.
The 16th version of The Christmas Light Show has moved from Wall to Belmar.
The show takes place at the Connelly-Campion-Wright Building in Belmar Plaza (704 Belmar Plaza, Belmar, NJ 07719).
As of now, there are two shows scheduled for December 10: one at 5 p.m. and one at 6:30 p.m. Each show lasts about 20 minutes and is a great experience.
I attended the light show a few years ago and I was almost in awe of the sensory experience; there are not only tens of thousands of lights, but also cannons, flames and synchronized music.
According to the Asbury Park Press,
“It’s going to be a whole new show,” said lead producer Dan Brateris, a Wall native and professor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. “It will feel a little different, but I think it will be really nice. Belmar does a good job lighting up the rest of that square.
The show is free and donations are encouraged to benefit RallyCap Sports Inc. They suggest a donation of $10 for individuals and $25 per family.
RallyCap Sports benefits children with special needs in the Central New Jersey area by building barrier-free playgrounds, sponsoring sports leagues and hosting social events for these children. Please consider making a donation to this charity.
Visitors are advised to arrive 30 minutes early (and carpool if possible) and dress warmly. According to the organizers, Santa Claus will also try to make an appearance.
