“Lights on Glendale” – one of the best Holiday lights displays in NJ


Visit 13 Glendale Dr. in Manalapan, NJ – that is where “Lights on Glendale” delight people from near and far, for a second year in a row. 

The mesmerizing display of lights, “dancing” to the most beloved Christmas songs, is created by Nick and Vanessa Antanies. It is Nick who designs how the lights are going to align with music, and Vanessa who designs this Christmas wonderland. Worth noting is also the fact, that each of 50 thousand LED lights that are there, was installed by hand, in a particular manner. 

Rampa News visited Lights on Glendale to bring you the behind the scenes of the project – you will find out how the display started, why, and how long does it take to put it up. There is still time to send a letter to Santa, and, you may even meet him in person – if you visit 13 Glendale Dr. this weekend! 

With the crowds that the display attracts, the family also hopes to support charities – while there, you can donate money to Wounded Warrior Project or you can donate new pajamas for children in need from Monmouth County and nearby.

The display is open every day from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. with visits from Special Characters on the weekends. The lights will be up until the first week of January. Occasional closures may happen, so always check their Facebook before you arrive.
