Shorebeat got a sneak preview of the “Christmas in Seaside Heights” event that is taking place this weekend, and we came away impressed – as always with the great team in the borough.
The event, which benefits the Seaside Heights Historical Society for the preservation of the borough’s historic Dentzel-Looff Carousel and the boardwalk museum that is planned for its new home between Sampson and Carteret avenues.
The details on the event are in the video attached to this story, and the information for joining the crowd is below.
“Christmas in Seaside Heights” will run through Sunday and will be held at the new Carousel Pavilion along the northern portion of the boardwalk. Santa will visit from the North Pole and be available for photos for $10. Visitors will be able to see the toy train display and the 14-ft Christmas tree. There will be music, entertainment, magicians, and a Seaside Heights sand sculpture by International award winning Sand Artists John Gowdy & Co.
The event will also feature vendors selling gifts for the holidays, including sweet treats, jewelry, crafts and more.
All proceeds will benefit the Seaside Heights Historical Society, which was formed over the past year as part of the effort to preserve the borough’s historic carousel.
Tickets are $4 and required for those ages 12 and up. Tickets can be purchased online at exit82.com. Tickets are time-specific as there is a capacity limit for the pavilion, and a time must be selected.

- Saturday, December 18 from 12 noon-7 p.m.
- Sunday, December 19 from 12 noon-6 p.m.
