SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The downtown business district on South Plainfield Avenue and old Hamilton Boulevard saw a flurry of activity when “Christmas in July” showcased South Plainfield businesses on Saturday.

The Tri-County Chamber of Commerce, the South Plainfield Business Association, and the Cultural Arts Commission sponsored the event, which is in its second year.  In addition to booths that featured the wares and services of local businesses, the event featured entertainers, a window painting contest, and a charity dunking booth where people could dunk their favorite dignitary.

Mayor Matt Anesh kicked off the day and led the High School marching band down South Plainfield Avenue before ushering in a day-long list of entertainers that included Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, cheerleaders, musicians, dancers, and singers.
