Get a head start
on the Holiday season!
November 18-20: Santa and his elves have decked out the Physick Estate with thousands of lights and holiday trimmings. Enjoy a wide variety of holiday tours and food and wine events to get you into the Christmas spirit. The Physick Estate becomes a Christmas wonderland during the holiday season. The free Carroll Gallery exhibit, An Old-fashioned Christmas: Holiday Traditions through the Years, brings back happy childhood memories, capturing the feeling of Christmas past with model trains, a Dickens Village beneath the boughs of our giant Christmas tree, and much more (through Jan. 1, 2017). Visit the Estate on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7pm as Santa arrives to flip the switch for the festive Tree-Lighting Ceremony (sponsored by Sturdy Savings Bank). That evening, the Physick House will be open for free, self-guided tours from 6pm-8pm. Visitors are encouraged to share in the holiday spirit and bring a non-perishable food item for the Cape May Community Food Bank. For kids, there are Santa’s Trolley Rides and a chance to visit with old St. Nick himself. Grown-ups will enjoy holiday ghost tales during Ghosts of Christmas Past Trolley Rides and Holiday Lights Trolley Rides.
