(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- The holiday spirit was in the air as a pair of festive events kicked off the Atlantic City Tinseltown Holiday Experience on Thursday, December 1.  The monthlong celebration of the holidays gives visitors the chance to enjoy an array of fun holiday happenings throughout the resort and region and discover why Travel + Leisure has named Atlantic City one of 2022’s “25 Best Christmas Towns in the USA.”

To officially launch the Atlantic City Tinseltown Holiday Experience, a tree lighting ceremony was held at Bally’s Atlantic City Casino Resort’s new venue, The Yard, located just off the world-famous Boardwalk. The event was followed by an evening community holiday festival at O’Donnell Park in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood, featuring live entertainment, an appearance by Santa, and complimentary holiday treats.

From spectacular holiday shows and pop-up experiences to an indoor festival of trees, elaborate décor, and much more, Atlantic City will be celebrating the holidays throughout the month of December. A map of the citywide holiday decorations will be available to visitors so they can tour the dazzling sights, and a list of holiday happenings can be found at, the resort’s official tourism website.

The only agency of its kind nationwide, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) has used Atlantic City casino reinvestments as a catalyst for meaningful, positive improvement in the lives of New Jersey residents since 1984. Under the 2011 Tourism District Act, the Authority's mission evolved from statewide projects to becoming the state's key economic development agency for Atlantic City.
