MILLBURN, NJ - As the sunset painted the sky in hues of pink and blue, Taylor Park in Millburn came alive with twinkling holiday lights to the delight of the gathered community. The Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce spearheaded the new event in conjunction with many sponsors. The display features lights, large wooden snowflakes and a larger than life polar bear statue that is the perfect spot for a fun photo op. 

Christmas Decor of New Jersey was brought in to set up the display that stretches from the gazebo area, around the baseball field and to the bridge connecting the park to main street. Residents and visitors can enjoy the unique display throughout the holiday season and into the new year.
