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.

Layers, layers, layers. Time to bundle up once again.
High temperature around the freezing mark today, with sunshine.
Our Saturday storm begins with snow by 10 am. Winter weather stays around all day and night tomorrow. A couple of inches accumulation in the metro area. More to the north and west, less to the south and east. Only a rain event for the shore.
Be careful! Whatever type of precip, we can promise you tricky travel tomorrow. The storm exits Sunday morning.
