The 2018 Jersey Shore Neighborhood Christmas Light Guide
It's awesome to see our neighbors at the Shore go all Clark W. Griswold with their Christmas lights. Whether it's for a good cause or just for fun, here are the houses in Monmouth and Ocean that you must check out this season.
Every year the display gets bigger and bigger, and so does the show community. This 25-minute Christmas light display raised $7,800 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year's show will run Sunday's through Thursday's 6pm-10pm, and Friday's and Saturday's 6pm-11pm through January 1. If you put your radio to 100.9 you can hear synchronized music!
Spectacular Ferrante Light Display - 12 Virginia Terrace, West Long Branch
Listener Rick Ferrante is known around the neighborhood for his decorations throughout the year. His Halloween show is amazing, but he tops himself with his Christmas display every year. Take a look!
Over 70,000 lights synchronized to music at 95.1. Check it out Sunday through Thursday 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm and Friday & Saturday 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm. They are hoping to be up and running by December 8.
This takes Christmas light displays to a whole new level. At Johnny's Hazlet Holiday Light Extravaganza you actually walk up the driveway to view over 2 dozen inflatable decorations, as well as 75,000 lights! Lights go on at dusk, usually around 6:00 pm and go off around 10:00 pm.
Santa and The Grinch will be arriving on Sunday, December 8th. They will depart back to the North Pole on the 23rd, after 11 pm so they can get ready for their toy delivery duties. There is no charge to enjoy the display or to take pictures with Santa/The Grinch, but if you feel inclined, there is a donation box next to Santa.
The Sims Holiday Lights has been going strong since 2010. Check out the show featuring thousands of lights from 5-10 pm on weekdays and 5-11 on weekends. Tune to 92.1 for synchronized music.
