OAK RIDGE — It’s really never too early to think about Christmas so envision riding in comfort to New York City to see the Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas Spectacular at a discounted group rate.You can travel with the Jefferson Township Recreation Department; and because Jefferson Township schools are closed for the NJEA Convention, you can bring the kids. The trip is on Friday, Nov. 9, and you’ll have time to sightsee and eat before the 2 p.m. performance.Christmas shines at Radio City and it begins when you walk through the doors of the magnificent Radio City Music Hall. You pause for a moment and stand to admire the Art Deco lobby then make your way to your seat. With a hush, slowly the curtain rises, the music swells and the Rockettes appear. Perfect, in unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing the audience in their precision. And just like that, you are transported to another place where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where Rag Dolls spring to life, and Wooden Soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and the bustle of the world outside disappears and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season. Then, in the blink of an eye, the curtain falls and you know Christmas is coming. Tickets are $97 each and include reserved ORCHESTRA seating (Section 3 - Rows L, M, N, O, P and Section 5 – Rows L, M, N, O, P), round-trip motor coach transportation and driver gratuity. Two buses will leave the Camp Jefferson parking lot, 81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong, NJ at 8:15 a.m.* sharp (please be ready to board the bus no later than 8 a.m.) — the bus will NOT wait for latecomers and will depart from NYC immediately after the show at approximately 3:45 p.m. The buses are leaving a little earlier than usual due to anticipated traffic resulting from the current Lincoln Tunnel project. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.Registration for this trip is only online through Community Pass so log on to https://register.communitypass.net/reg/index.cfm and if you already have an existing account, sign in or follow the prompts to set up your own personal account through the Jefferson Township community.
