Carteret’s Annual Holiday Festival and Christmas Tree Lighting Takes Place Friday

(CARTERET, NJ) -- Mayor Daniel J. Reiman has announced Carteret’s Annual Holiday Festival and Christmas Tree Lighting will be held this Friday, December 3rd at Carteret Park from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. The Festival, which is free for all families to attend, will feature live holiday music, pictures with Santa, hot cocoa, hot cider, cookies, pretzels, and horse & buggy rides, all compliments of the Carteret Charity Trust Fund. The Christmas tree lighting will be at 7:00pm sharp.

“Our annual Holiday Festival is a chance for families to enjoy a night of fun with their friends and neighbors in Carteret’s beautiful Carteret Park,” said Mayor Dan Reiman. “We all know how expensive the season can be, so a free night of entertainment with a special visit from Santa is a welcome cause for celebration.”

On Sunday, November 28th, Carteret held its annual Menorah Lighting outside Borough Hall at 61 Cooke Ave to commemorate the first night of Chanukah. The ceremony was attended by members of the Yeshiva Gedola of Carteret, including Rabbi Azriel Brown, who lit the first candle of the traditional Carteret Menorah.
