UNION, NJ - The Township of Union will once again kick off the holiday season with the Annual Holiday Celebration Tree Lighting ceremony.  The 32nd annual event will be held on Sunday, December 6.  This ceremony is the township’s best-known holiday tradition.

Festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. in front of Town Hall, 1976 Morris Ave. There will be a live nativity, free hot chocolate provided by Crossroads Christian Fellowship Church (while supplies last) and photos with Santa inside Town Hall following the tree lighting. Musical entertainment will feature students from Livingston Elementary School, Washington Elementary School and Jefferson C5 School.

The newest addition to this years’ celebration is an ice carving demonstration. Artist Bill Bywater, professional commercial sculptor, will demonstrate the skill involved in transforming an ice block into creative art.
