PISCATAWAY, NJ -- Middlesex County’s East Jersey Old Town Village in Piscataway held their annual holiday program on Saturday, complete with actors dressed in period costumes who reenacted life in a Colonial Revolutionary War encampment.
The village’s historic buildings were open for tours and were decorated for holiday season.
Girl Scouts from various Piscataway troops led the singing of Christmas carols and staffed children’s craft activities, while two horse-drawn sleighs took visitors on hay rides through Johnson Park.
Musicians Ridley and Anne Enslow performed colonial holiday music and the Traveling Literary Theater presented ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Saturday’s program also featured a Volunteer Recognition/Founder’s Day Ceremony where the scouts and members of the Piscataway Garden Club and various donors received certificates and other gifts for their contributions to maintaining the village’s programs and grounds.
The event and Founder’s Day Ceremony were sponsored by The Middlesex County Office of Arts and History and the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
East Jersey Old Town Village is located at 1050 River Road in Piscataway inside Johnson Park.
