MILLBURN, NJ – The Snowflake parade came to Millburn on a bright and sunny day as the township came out to wave to familiar friends, listen to the beat of high school marching bands and ring in the holiday season as a community.

The Downtown Millburn Development Association, whose mission is to enhance the economic vitality and appearance of downtown Millburn, sponsored the 32-year-old tradition. The non-profit organization also sponsors other activities such as Girls' Night Out, the farmer’s market, sidewalk sales and Halloween activities.

The Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir opened the parade with an acapella rendition of the national anthem led by Paper Mill’s Director of Public Relations, Shayne Miller.

Leading the parade was Millburn mayor Robert Tillotson along with deputy mayor Ted Bourke, committee members Ian Mount and Sandra Haimoff, along with some of their family members.  Closely behind the township leaders were a bunch of clowns, literally, along with several Girl and Cub Scouts and marching bands from Denville, Madison and Newark.  The Emerald Society’s Pipes and Drum Corp, a crowd favorite, marched regally to the sounds of bagpipes and bass drums.

This year Investor’s Bank brought along a train giving rides to kids during the parade.  The Wells Fargo’s horse and carriage was also a familiar site.  The Millburn/Short Hills Chinese Association, the Shriners and Millburn Middle School students were also participants.
