"We are excited to once again be part of the annual Winter Walk," said Connell. With the support received from Connell and the business community, and more visitors coming every year, the Winter Walk has become one of the most significant holiday events in the surrounding area. 

This event draws thousands of residents from Berkeley Heights and neighboring communities to the Berkeley Heights downtown business district. "Our goal every year is to give back to the community by creating a festive, welcoming atmosphere in our downtown area," said Boothby.
