Holiday House Decorating is a Freehold Borough Tradition

For over 30 years, Freehold Borough has celebrated its holiday spirit by recognizing those who decorate their homes for Christmas.

On Monday, December 12, 2016, homes throughout Freehold Borough will be nominated and judged by local students who are driven by adults through neighborhoods in the Borough.  Judging will be done between 5:30 pm and 7:00 on December 12, 2016.  To be included, residents only have to make sure the house lights are on by 5:30 pm.

Certificates of Recognition will be awarded for Freehold Borough residents’ holiday decorating efforts at 5:30 p.m. on December 15th at the Hall of Records Plaza.  Musical entertainment will be provided by the Freehold Township Band under the direction of Mr. Edward Gattsek.  Santa is expected to make a guest appearance.  Refreshments will be  provided by The Court Jester.

The Holiday House Decorating Contest is sponsored by the Freehold Borough Recreation Commission.

Operation Santa: The Freehold Fire Department’s “Operation Santa” will bring Santa to your home to deliver Christmas Gifts once again this year, from December 14 through December 17th, starting at 6:00 p.m.  Santa will arrive on a fire truck during the evening on those dates.
