Starting December 24, 2019

"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." - Clement Clarke Moore (Photo of Father Christmas at the Van Nest-Hoff-Vannatta Farmstead)

And so here we are, on the verge of the Christmas holiday, three nights into Hanukkah, and just a week left before we roar in the '20s. It's a little quieter when it comes to events but there are some in store, plus we look ahead with a few New Year's Eve ideas in this, our final edition of the year. Be sure to check the calendar on the Explore Warren website for things to do. To all our Warren County Wanderers out there, your friends at the Explore Warren County Tourism Partnership, as well as the Warren County Board of Chosen Freeholders and all of the County government, wish you and yours a joyous and peaceful holiday season, and Happy Wanderings always. See you in 2020!
