Hot chocolate from Rita’s Water Ice was provided to keep everyone warm while entertainment from the Roselle Girl Scout Troops 40323 and 40587, along with Amanda Naggy and the Roselle District Elementary Choir and “DJ Lil Man” who fished out the entertainment. 

Kids could pose with Olaf from the Disney movie Frozen and some other charters roaming about and other activities included a bounce house, train rides, and ice skating rink.
