If you haven’t noticed the cooler temperatures increasingly becoming more apparent with each passing day, it simply means that we’re in fall and quickly approaching the holiday season. With Red Bank, November 23rd is the date you’ll want to remember because that’s when the town will be hosting its annual events consisting of the town lighting, a Santa parade, and ending it with the Holiday Express Concert.
Kick off the season with the annual Holiday Express Concert & Town Lighting. Holiday Express will be rocking the streets with all of your favorite tunes plus plenty of special guests. The holiday lights will be lit for the first time this season during the concert. The Red Bank Fire Department will be on hand with free hot chocolate. And don’t miss the LIVE countdown to light the town with News 12! Free parking throughout town.
Santa rides the NJ Transit train into Red Bank for the annual Town Lighting & Holiday Express concert. Join Santa on the train in Little Silver or meet him at the Red Bank train station when he arrives. There’ll be festivities before and after the train arrives with the Kathryn Barnett dancers and the Pipes and Drums of the Atlantic Watch. Once in Red Bank, Santa will board a firetruck and lead the parade to Broad Street for the Holiday Express Concert & Town Lighting.
Santa Express departs from Little Silver at 6:44pm. Once Santa arrives in Red Bank, he will lead the parade to Broad Street for the Town Lighting & Holiday Express Concert.
