Percentage of proceeds to benefit Make-A-Wish® New Jersey
MILLVILLE, N.J. – A longstanding southern New Jersey tradition is returning to Millville and New Jersey Motorsports Park this holiday season.
The Meischke Christmas Wonderland of Lights, a holiday-themed display featuring over 250,000 lights, will open at the park on Saturday, November 24th.
The late Stanley “Chick” Meischke hosted the display at his residence in Delmont for 40 years attracting tens of thousands of families each holiday season. Beginning in 2011, NJMP partnered with the Meischke family to keep the tradition going in Chick’s name.
This year, the display will be posted at the Finish Line Pub, located at the heart of New Jersey Motorsports Park, creating a magical walkthrough display behind the clubhouse. Santa Claus will once again be available to hear Christmas lists and pose for pictures each night.
The Wonderland of Lights will be open Thursday through Sunday from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. weekly beginning on Saturday, November 24th through Sunday, December 30th.
“We’re very happy to once again partner with the Meischke family and continue a wonderful tradition started by
Mr. Meischke and his family over 40 years ago,” said Brad Scott, NJMP general manager. “Our staff welcomes the local community to NJMP to celebrate the holiday season in a true winter wonderland environment.”
Admission is $5.00 for adults, $2.00 for children 12-and-under, while children under 3-years-old are free. A percentage of proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish® New Jersey, continuing an annual tradition started by the Meischkes. Tickets can be purchased at the ‘Gate A’ entrance to the park each day the display is open.
Nightly parking for this event will be free once again in 2012, with concessions available behind the clubhouse. This year’s Meischke Christmas Wonderland of Lights is powered by Atlantic City Electric.
