Congress Hall’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony features Donated 30’ Tree


CAPE MAY, N.J.-It’s a magical night when the switch is flipped to light Congress Hall’s Christmas tree – the centerpiece of their annual Winter Wonderland celebration. This year’s tree, a 30 foot Douglas Fir, was donated by a Forked River family, The Sullivans. Their tree was entered in the online search and was chosen out of dozens of entries. They will be at Congress Hall in Cape May to watch the tree light up for the first time this season during a ceremony Friday night, which is a favorite holiday event for Cape May residents and visitors.
