Martel’s Christmas Wonderland will open in Hamilton, New Jersey, on November 24
The Martell family of Hamilton, New Jersey (Mercer County) has set the date when they will once again open their famous Christmas house for all to see during the holidays.
The tradition continues. I know you’re excited to go check it out either for the first time or the millionth time. It’s very fun.
I’ve been monitoring their Facebook group and a post finally revealed that Martel’s Christmas Wonderland on Philips Avenue will be starting the day after Thanksgiving, Friday 24 November.
Martel’s huge holiday show was shown on TV. The family competed in and won ABC-TV’s holiday special “The Great Christmas Light Fight” 3 years ago.
It was exciting to see a local family on the show… and it’s great to be able to say, “I’ve been there before.”
Many Mercer County (and beyond) families have made going to Martel’s Christmas House a family tradition.
If you’ve never been, it’s a holiday light show. Once it opens on November 24, it will be open 7 days a week (weather permitting) until New Year’s Day.
Be sure to like them on Facebook to get weather announcements and to find out when Santa will be showing up throughout the season.
If you want to feel some holiday atmosphere, Martel’s Christmas Wonderland will do that. There’s music, all kinds of holiday displays and lights, plus a Ferris wheel.
Martel’s Christmas Wonderland is located at 21 Philips Street in Hamilton Township, New Jersey (Mercer County).
If you’re familiar with the area, it’s close to White Horse Circle.
The picture below is just the front yard…you can go through the back yard too.
Martel’s house is in a typical residential neighborhood, so parking is a challenge. The Martels ask you to respect their neighbors and not block their paths.
I’m sure the family has been working on screen for months. Millions of lights don’t go up overnight.
I can’t wait to see it…again…it never gets old.
