Downtown Millburn thanks all our retailers who participated in this annual event.    “The more vibrant our downtown is during the holiday season, the more attractive it will be to our residents and shoppers” stated Shayne Miller, Director of Press and Public Relations for Paper Mill Playhouse.  Our judges included Paper Mill Playhouse employees, Mayor Tom McDermott and other volunteers.
 
Downtown Millburn is pleased to help brighten the downtown this holiday season by hanging wooden toy soldiers on the utility poles, adding lights and greenery to the gazebo in Taylor Park and by draping boughs and ribbons on the temporary fences along Millburn Avenue and at the parking lots on Millburn Avenue and Essex Street.  We thank Millburn Florist for designing and decorating the flower pots along Main Street for the season.
