Rotary Clock (300 Block of Washington Street)
The merchants of the Washington Street Mall invite you to kick off the holiday season and celebrate their 50th anniversary on Black Friday! Decorating of the Mall will be complete, and Cape May's small town Christmas charm will be alive and well as the heart of Cape May is officially illuminated for the holidays! To mark our 50th anniversary, we will officially unveil our new decorative string lights and banners! Santa Claus will stroll the Mall from 4pm to 5pm, posing for pictures and handing out candy canes donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May. Additionally, local musicians Gordon Vincent, The Honeyhawks, and Bernadette & Amy have donated their time and talents and will be performing on the Mall. At 4:45pm at the Rotary Clock on the 300 block of Washington Street, Mayor Zack Mullock, Councilwoman Lorraine Baldwin, and others will provide words of welcome marking our 50th anniversary and officially kicking off the holiday season! In the spirit of the season, the event will support the Cape May Community Food Closet. Donation boxes for nonperishable food items will be located on the 300, 400, and 500 blocks of Washington Street from 9am through 5pm. In addition, beginning Black Friday and lasting through Christmas Eve, the following businesses on the Mall will accept monetary donations for the food closet: Across the Way, Bath Time, Beachlove Cape May, Good Scents, Great White Shark, Import Bazaar, Madame's Port, Quirk & Co., Red Oak Trading, South of Jackson, Splash, and Whale's Tale. Be sure to come early and stay late to take advantage of the great Black Friday deals from our Mall merchants and to indulge in our fabulous restaurants.
