TOTOWA, NJ - Due to the sharp increase in confirmed cases of COVID-19, the Totowa and West Paterson Fire Departments made the decision to cancel the 2020 Holiday Lights Parade for the safety of the community and the first responders who organize and participate in the event. 

Organizers of the parade considered multiple options as a substitute for the parade, but could not find a solution that would provide a similar holiday experience while observing public health guidelines.   

The 2020 event was to have taken place Nov. 28, 2020.

The 2021 event is scheduled for Sat. Nov. 27, 2021. TAPinto will be there.
