BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. -- Santa Claus arrived at Town Hall in a horse drawn wagon at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, as members of Governor Livingston Marching Band played seasonal tunes and excited children and their parents waited to greet him.

Santa shook hands with the children In the crowd then went up the steps where he was greeted by Mayor Robert Woodruff, who presented him with a key to the town, then led him into the council chamber where Santa found his special seat. Once he was settled and had spoken to his elf helpers, he told the children he wanted them to tell him if they had been good during the year, and what they and their mom and dad wanted for Christmas. 

Santa will be visiting with children until 1 p.m. There are cookies and hot chocolate for the waiting children, GL Marching Band candy for sale and an opportunity to buy the first-ever Berkeley Heights branded ornament and magnet inside and free horse-drawn wagon rides outside.

Santa will return to Peppertown Park for the tree lighting at 5:30 p.m., after which Winter Walk officially begins.
