It was the JECM version of a star studded spectacular - featuring Queen Elsa from the movie Frozen and Santa Clause himself all the way from the North Pole. The official December 13th, Christmas Extravaganza! Local social clubs such as the motorcycle riders of BlocBurnaz and the wonderful women of Benevolent Beautiez were on hand to raffle off gifts. The East Orange Fire Department was also in attendance to show their support. There were free books courtesy of our partners at Bridge Of Books. In addition, we had an abundance of donations from the United Way and other charities.
Of course the community of East Orange and surrounding areas of Essex County were present for this cheerful event.We had a packed house! Our visitors had a warm safe haven and full access to the JECM exhibits. Our dependable trustee board at the Jersey Explorer Children's Museum always go above and beyond their means to make sure we are presented in a positive light. Yes it was a Saturday to remember, as the museum was filled with colorful painted snow penguins, bright blinking Christmas lights, holiday music tunes and a digital snowfall on the ceiling of the main hall. We appreciate all the attendees and volunteers who helped make our Christmas Extravaganza a magical unforgettable experience.
Looking forward to next year! Check out the pictures below.
