MILLBURN, NJ – Downtown Millburn’s wider sidewalks came just in time to accommodate the large crowd that gathered for the 33rd annual Snowflake Parade. This popular Millburn tradition heralds in the holidays with festive costumes, music and, of course, Santa Claus.

Over 30 organizations participated in this year’s parade led by Millburn Township’s mayor Ted Bourke and Committeewoman Cheryl Burstein. Grand Marshall honors were given to long time Millburn resident John Murray, who for many years organized the parade. Unfortunately, his wife Barbara was unable to be with him this year.

The perennial Emerald Society in full regalia, the Millburn/Short Hills Desi club and marching bands from Madison, Irvington and Newark entertained parade-goers with colorful sights and unique sounds. Township girl and boy scouts proudly donning their uniforms and local businesses and nonprofits all marched down Millburn Ave. to open the holiday season.

Giving his reindeers a break, St. Nick strode into town, compliments of the Millburn Fire Department.

The celebration didn’t end with the parade. The festivities continued in Millburn’s Courtyard adjacent to Town Hall with music, food, carnival games, Henna tattoos and “train” rides.
