Every year, hundreds of children and their families attend a New Year’s Eve celebration in Sea Isle City, which allows kids to ring-in the New Year and still get to bed at a reasonable hour. The theme of the celebration this year will be “From Sea to Shining Sea.”
The celebration, hosted by the City’s Division of Recreation and Municipal Alliance Committee, will be held at the Gymnasium (inside the former Public School Building), from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will feature family activities, dancing, entertainment, food and an early countdown to midnight with a falling crystal ball at 7 p.m.
The evening will “end with a bang” at the JFK Boulevard Beach at 8 p.m. with a fireworks display.
Reservations are required (limited space availability) and children must be accompanied by an adult. Sandwiches and desserts will be provided and families are asked to bring their own non-alcoholic beverages. For more information, phone the Recreation Office at (609) 263-0050.
Jitney service will be available from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. The route will be from 29th Street to 94th Street, north and southbound, along Landis Avenue. For more information on Jitney service, phone (609) 513-0312. Please note that 42nd Place and Park Road is not on the route, unless there is a request.
