ROSELLE, PARK, NJ - What a night for the kids and adults alike as Santa arrived in style by way of the “parade of lights" on Friday evening at Roselle Park’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Gala at the Michael Mauri Gazebo Park.

Residents, groups, and organizations participated in the parade by decorating their vehicles with holiday lights and ornaments and made their way through town ending on Chestnut Street and Grant Avenue. For the children, it was the perfect way to usher in the long-awaited arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus.
