Jersey Family Fun’s 5th Birthday Party ~ Northern New Jersey

Posted on: December 7th, 2015 by


Facebook 5th Birthday



Jersey Family Fun will host our final birthday party to celebrate our 5th Birthday on Saturday, December 12, from 3 pm to 7 pm at the Gateway Family YMCA in Rahway, New Jersey.


We love any opportunity we can have to host a fun event for our readers and what better reason is there than to celebrate a birthday? This October, Jersey Family Fun turned 5 years old. We are blown away and incredibly thankful for the support of so many over the past 5 years that has allowed us to grow and be successful in helping families find fun things to do together. Thank you! It has been our hope to celebrate with not one but 3 parties across New Jersey. In October, we celebrated at the Sahl’s Father Son Farm in Southern New Jersey. In November, we celebrated at iPlay America in Central New Jersey. Now, we are preparing to celebrate with our fans in Northern New Jersey.


We hope you can come join us for this birthday celebration. We have an afternoon full of all kinds of fun activities and prizes. Keep reading for more details. Registration is not required BUT we do have an incentive for you to register to attend.  For the first 50 who register with our Facebook event, we will have a special gift at check in. For everyone who registers online, you will receive an extra ticket into our prize drawings. We’ll be giving away cool toys that are on kids’ wish lists this year.


This Jersey Family Fun final 5th Birthday Party Celebration will be at

the Gateway Family YMCA, at 1564 Irving Street in Rahway, New Jersey.
