The event started at 3:30 p.m. at the Pheasant Run Plaza, where Santa Claus arrived  on a fire truck( video here)  to a waiting crowd. The Watchung Hills High School Marching band helped to greet Santa and led him, escorted by the Washington Valley Fire Department, on a parade through the town center.( video here)

Music from the Watchung Hills Marching Band  kept the mood lively and Santa's elves, in Warren Township Police cars, stopped traffic for the parade to cross the streets.

After arriving at the Municipal Complex, a petting zoo, Frosty the Snowman, the Lions Club ‘Leo’, treats and much more greeted the crowd. Children wrote letters to Santa and families lined up to see the big guy himself. More than 300 people registered to see Santa Claus.

As one woman in the crowd said, "As old as I am, I love to see Santa come to town. I feel like a kid again."
