Vernon will shine even brighter this winter season with the Vernon Lights Festival. The new attraction opened on November 29th and is billed among the largest Lantern Arts Festivals in North America. A Hello Panda Festivals production, the Vernon lights festival is the largest of its kind in New Jersey, and features a walk-through wonderland experience, showcasing authentic Chinese lanterns and multisensory exhibits.
