ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – (Tuesday, December 8, 2015) – The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) will offer free parking at The Wave Garage for all Atlantic City residents attending the City of Atlantic City’s Annual Winter Wonderland celebration taking place at Bass Pro Shops on Saturday, December 12.
Wave Garage staff members will validate parking for residents only when presented with their ticket stubs from the Winter Wonderland event, which runs from 8-10:30 am. Free tickets were distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis last week at City Hall to residents who showed proof of residency and identification.
This annual holiday event for Atlantic City children ages 3-12 will feature fun activities inside and outside Bass Pro Shops, as well as rides, magic shows, games, arts and crafts, and an opportunity to meet Santa Claus himself.
The Atlantic City Winter Wonderland is presented by the City of Atlantic City and sponsored by the CRDA, Atlantic City Free Public Library and Atlantic County Toys for Kids Program. For more information, please contact the City of Atlantic City’s Division of Recreation at 609-347-5643.

The only agency of its kind nationwide, the CRDA has used Atlantic City casino reinvestments as a catalyst for meaningful, positive improvement in the lives of New Jersey residents, investing nearly $2 billion in more than 400 projects statewide since 1984. Under the 2011 Tourism District Act, CRDA’s mission evolved from statewide projects to becoming the state’s key economic development agency for Atlantic City. CRDA responsibilities expanded to include land use regulation, clean and safe initiatives, tourism marketing, ownership and oversight of the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall, and partnership with the Atlantic City Alliance to brand and market Atlantic City. The former ACCVA, now a division of CRDA, is the first destination marketing organization in New Jersey to achieve prestigious Destination Marketing Accreditation by the Destination Marketing Association International.
