HAWTHORNE, NJ - The annual Hawthorne Chamber of Commerce Santa Parade stepped off at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 7. The parade followed its usual route down Lafayette Avenue and ended behind the Louis Bay 2nd Library where locals could gather, be entertained by bands and costumed characters, and check out local vendors.

With excellent weather and crisp cool air, the gathered crowds of all ages along the borough's main thoroughfare were in full holiday spirit.  TAPinto invites our readers to check out our photo gallery above.
