If you've never been to East Jersey Olde Towne, you don't know what you're missing.
This architectural treasure, located in Piscataway, is a collection of colonial-era buildings and reproductions, brimming with the history of Central Jersey.
It's also a perfect spot for celebrating the holidays as our Founding Fathers did in the days of yore. This year, they'll be holding special seasonal activities this Sunday, December 9, from 1 pm to 4 pm.
The day's holiday schedule includes:

Master Storyteller Rivka Willick returns with an all new mix of traditional and modern tales that span the globe.
