Sometimes we get so caught up with work and other responsibilities we forget to enjoy some of the fun activities and special events the Jersey Shore has to offer.

Get your group together and make it a point to kick off your very own personal holiday season with this AP event. Rich Robinson is hosting the Christmas Tree Lighting on November 25th at the Grand Arcade of Convention Hall in Asbury Park at 6 p.m. Enjoy some great music from Kristian Rex & the St. Nicks with special guest, Nicole Atkins. There will be a DJ, pictures with Santa and other festivities to get you into the holiday spirit. Last year was crazy packed so get to the event early as space will be limited.

This event will definitely inspire you to put up your tree and decorations over the weekend.
