Allaire Community Farm In Wall, NJ Set A Record Perfect For The Holiday Season
According to NJ1015.com, the Jersey Shore is about to be part of another world record.
Any guesses on what it could be?
Could it be the world's longest boardwalk? Or what about the world's largest slice of pizza?! How cool would that be!
But these guesses are not even close.
This new record is being set at Allaire Community Farm located in Wall Township.
I have definitely told you about the amazing work these guys do before.
This farm is a non-profit organization that, "is focused on helping special needs adults and children, teens facing mental health issues, veterans with PTSD and families battling cancer. We accomplish our mission through programs, events and outreach that uses animal therapy, equine therapy, organic gardening and vocational training," according to their website.
Before we to the record setting information, you need to be aware that this is all part of their 2nd Annual Christmas Lights Spectacular, which kicks off November 10th.
You'll get into the holiday spirit, that's for sure. Come see almost 1,000,000 twinkling lights, enjoy a holiday tractor ride and Christmas plants, baked goods, hot chocolate and more for sale.
And you'll be getting into the Christmas spirit for a good cause.
This event is used as a fundraiser to support the farm and their animals through the winter months. They really do such amazing work.
You have until December 23th to hit up this Wall family holiday attraction.
But now let's get onto how history was made at the Jersey shore last night, on November 9th
Allaire Community Farm put a huge dreidel on display as part of the Christmas Light Spectacular!
“The dreidel was designed by an outside company and built onsite by supporters of the farm. It’s made of steel and high-grade mesh banners with a motor to spin the dreidel,” said Jo Ann Burney, co-founder and executive director of the farm according to NJ1015.com.
Previously, the largest dreidel was displayed in Florida standing at 25-feet high.
The one at the Allaire Community Farm in Wall is a solid 30-feet tall! So now we can say that the largest dreidel in the world is on display just a short drive from where we live.
Be aware that to attend any event at the Allaire Community Farm, you have to get tickets and make a reservation.
Thank you to Lauren of Allaire Community Farm for sending over these festive photos.
Let's take a sneak peak at this record-setting dreidel:
Look at the Jersey Shore making history.
Happy Hanukah to all who celebrate! Did you know that I am Jewish? So yes, I will be checking out this record-setting dreidel this holiday season.
I feel like I will have to chant this to myself at least once while I'm there:
Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tsivanu l’hadlik ner shel Hanukkah.
That is the Jewish prayer said while lighting the menorah during the 8 nights of Hanukah.
Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel. I made you out of clay!
