Atlantic City is getting $595,000 to deck the halls in time for Christmas.
The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority agreed to spend the money in hopes of attracting more visitors at a time when the casinos are struggling.
The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/Sq1HkS ) reports 6-foot candy canes will adorn each light post on Atlantic Avenue and a 35-foot-tall Christmas tree with 3,000 lights will sparkle in the South Inlet.
Atlantic City also plans to hold a Christmas parade on Dec. 1.
