While the holiday season is officially over, the festivities at Harbaugh Village remain.
Visitors can walk through the Mullica Hill site and enjoy the outdoor ice-skating rink, light show, sleigh rides and fire pit rentals. Skating tickets can be reserved online at $20; fire pit reservations are $40..
“The landscaped walkway entrance sets the tone for the stroll through the archway to find The Square of local vendor stalls on one side and the wine and beer garden on the other,” Mayor Lou Manzo said. “The beautiful paver path throughout the village serves as a trail to the fire pits and heated igloos on the right and the ice-skating rink on the left.”
Harbaugh Village was founded by Steve Harbaugh, owner of Harbaugh Developers, after years of attracting Christmas light enthusiasts to the holiday display and toy drive at his Stone Harbor home.
“There are people out there that need help, and if we’re getting the extra funds coming in now, it’s great to help those families that do need it,” says Gina Harbaugh, Steve’s wife, in a promotional video for the Harbaugh Village Facebook page.
The village is connected to the nonprofit Harbaugh House, an organization dedicated to helping displaced families.
But even after the holiday season, Harbaugh Village remains a year-round attraction for the Mullica Hill community and beyond.
Village hours are Wednesday and Thursday, 4 to 9 p.m.; Friday from 4 to 9:30 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The site will have live musical performances and DJs on each open day for the next two weeks. For more information and how to purchase tickets, visit harbaughvillage.com.
