Gov. Christie & NFL Announce Events For 2014 Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

The Super Bowl will make it's northern debut in 2014 at MetLife Stadium on February 2, 2014.

Governor Chris Christie and the National Football League recently announced a series of events that will take place throughout New Jersey leading up to the big game. 

Our region's first Super Bowl is a little more than one year away, and in New Jersey, the countdown has officially begun," said Governor Christie. "Hosting the big game on February 2 and its many celebratory lead-up events during Super Bowl Week is a major win for the state, its tourism and economic developments."

Media Day will take place at Newark's Prudential Center on January 28.  This will be the first time this event will be held outside of the game venue.

The NFC team will be practicing at the Timex Center and the AFC team will be practicing at the Atlantic Health Facility. 

The NFL Tailgate Party will take place at the Grandstand at the Meadowlands Racetrack, on Sunday, February 2.

The Super Bowl Host Committee's pre-game party will also be held in New Jersey, as well as all post game partied for both teams.

You can catch all the action right here on Fox 29 next year!  Hopefully our Eagles will make the short trip up the turnpike for the big dance.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
