WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Turtle Back Zoo 'Holiday Lights Spectacular' is going on from 5-9 p.m. every weekend now through the end of January. Admission is free, and visitors are greeted at the entrance by Rudolph, the most famous reindeer of all.
The 'Holiday Lights Spectacular' is sponsored by Covanta Energy, Essex County Parks Foundation, McLoone's Boathouse, Prudential Financial, PSE&G, and the Zoological Society of N.J.
The first weekend of December saw a steady flow of families wanting to see the rainbow of colors illuminating the evening sky and animals.
"We came to see the lights and some of the animals and take our picture with this reindeer," said Ken Douglas of Bloomfield, who came to the zoo with his wife and two children as they stood next to Rudolph.
The zoo is collecting non-perishable food, winter coats and unwrapped new toys for the needy each evening of holiday lights.

"For Gordon Crawford:
Recommended to us by a friend, Gordon and his team of professionals provided the support we needed to first decide we wanted to sell, determine the value of our home, stage it for showing and negotiate a speedy sale. Gordon listened to our concerns and took our feelings and needs into consideration at every turn. His team is the best. They are truly dedicated to their clients. I would use Gordon again and recommend him to anyone without reservation."
