Several years ago, I told you about a house in Mickleton, NJ, that recreated the Griswold House from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, complete with Cousin Eddie’s RV, and how it was turned into a toy drive by the owners who would put donated toys in the RV, eventually filling it.

Last year, I wrote about the expansion plans of Steve Harbaugh, who created an entire Christmas Village, calling it “The North Pole Experience at Harbaugh Village.”

They may have moved and grown bigger, but the mission to collect toys continues.

Some of the things to enjoy at the North Pole experience include heated igloos, a skating rink, fire pits, a gift shop, and, of course, Santa.

More about George’s House:

Putting smiles on childrenʼs faces and having fun while doing it is at the heart and soul of our initiative, which is why we established Georgeʼs House: a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to collecting and distributing toys to children during the holidays and throughout the year. In addition to the year-round toy drive, Georgeʼs House also assists displaced families by providing transitional housing to help them get back on their feet. Help us create more smiles and housing opportunities by donating today.

There are also food trucks, a sweet shop, and crafts available.

The Village is located at 126 Bridgeton Pike Mullica Hill, NJ.
