Outside, there will be horse-drawn wagon rides for the children.  

While all this is going on, members of the Downtown Beautification Committee will be selling ornaments and magnets branded with the new Berkeley Heights logo. The proceeds from the sale of the ornament, which is three and a quarter inches in size, and the magnet, which is oval,  will be used to buy more seasonal banners for the downtown area.

Santa Claus will take a break and will return to help with the Tree Lighting at Peppertown Park. TAPinto has been told he will be on a fire truck and arrive at the Park via Sherman Avenue at 5 p.m.  This is the first time the town has held its tree lighting in Peppertown Park.
