    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, November 8, 2019, 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. Pause for a moment and stand to admire the Art Deco lobby and holiday decorations then make your way to your seat. With a hush, slowly the curtain rises, the music swells and Rockettes appear. Perfect, in unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that, you are transported to another place where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, Santa takes center stage, where Rag Dolls spring to life, Wooden Soldiers march in a fantastic parade, and a living nativity scene is recreated. 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 here.

    Tickets are $97 each and include reserved ORCHESTRA seating ,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 (board the bus no later than 8 am) – the bus will NOT wait for latecomers and will depart from NYC immediately after the show at approximately 3:45 pm. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
