UNION COUNTY, NJ - One and all are invited to join in the 60th Annual Christmas Carol sing-a-long in the historic Rotunda at the Union County Courthouse at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24.

The event features an enormous 30-foot tall blue spruce tree soaring up past the second story of the Rotunda. Festooned with lights in a snowy tableau populated by animated characters, it makes a colorful background for family holiday photos.

“The annual Union County Sing-A-Long is one of the year’s most enjoyable Union County traditions, bringing the community together to enjoy classic holiday favorites,” said Freeholder Vice Chairman Bruce Bergen, who will act as Master of Ceremonies. “If you’re doing some last minute gift shopping in midtown Elizabeth, please drop in and join the festivities.”

The Singalong is free and open to the public. Everyone can join in the group singing, and there will also be soloists and a live keyboardist.

The Christmas tree in the Rotunda is donated each year by a County resident. This year’s tree is thanks to the generosity of the Mignone family of Clark. It is on display throughout the holiday season and may be viewed during regular Courthouse hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., except for holidays.
