MONTCLAIR, NJ - Hundreds gathered at the holiday tree lighting to partake in the festivities on Friday evening at the Church Street Plaza. Although it was rainy and cold, families seemed unbothered as they laughed and sang along to their favorite holiday tunes. The brief program was filled with music and performances and opened with a brief welcome from Third Ward Councilor Sean Spiller. 

Once the holiday performances ended, children and families gathered in the mall for pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

On Saturday, Santa and the Community Band traveled throughout the town giving gifts to children and spreading holiday cheer.
