FANWOOD, NJ - Fanwood’s holiday season officially begins when Santa Claus arrives in town on Sunday, December 6, at 3:00 p.m.

Everyone is invited to meet Santa under the big tent on the lawn in front of Fanwood's  North Avenue Train Station and enjoy an afternoon of seasonal music, holiday crafts and refreshments -- all for free.

Children who stop by to say hello to Santa will get a free photograph of their visit with him. Children can also enter contests and win prizes. The celebration concludes at 5:00 p.m. when Mayor Colleen Mahr lights the Fanwood town tree on the train station lawn. This event is sponsored by the Fanwood Recreation Commission.
