Events this Week: December 21 – 28, 2022

It’s Christmas! This week’s Cape May County calendar of events is a bit slow as the county prepares for the holiday. Next week there will be a number of fireworks shows and New Year’s events to look forward to. But if you’re looking for something to do this week, you’re not completely out of luck. Congress Hall continues with its Winter Wonderland, skating returns to Cape May, and a festive lights display happens the days leading up to Christmas in Wildwood.
