North Caldwell Hosts their 5th Annual Joy, Peace and Goodwill Festival this Sunday!

NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - Bring your cameras and sleighbells to North Caldwell’s Town Hall on Sunday because Santa is coming to town!  North Caldwell’s 5th Annual Joy, Peace and Goodwill event takes place this Sunday.

Santa’s elves have confirmed that he most definitely will be arriving into town on Sunday to meet first with the North Caldwell Fire Department and then drive up to Town Hall on their fire truck by 5pm.

Fire Chief, John D'Ascensio, commented:  "We are happy to escort Santa into Town for this Annual Event. He will be looking for only good boys and girls, so make sure you're good!  Also, we have tried for years to get Santa to join the Fire Department and we are hoping this year, he will. The North Caldwell Fire Department is always looking for good people to become members."

Beginning at 4:30pm and lasting until 6pm, holiday festivities will take place inside Town Hall.  

North Caldwell’s Department of Recreation, directed by Jamie Cannon, put out a statement: “Come and join us this Sunday!  There will be a DJ Legendery playing holiday music,  crafts for the kids by The Coloring Room,  hot chocolate, cider, marshmallows, and baked goods.”

Santa will be there to participate in the fun and outside will oversee the lighting of not only the Town Christmas Tree but the Menorah as well.

The Recreation Department continued:  “We’ll have a bonfire, the Tree and Menorah Lighting and a special appearance by Santa on the fire truck giving out candy canes and more! Also, we will be collecting new toys for our Hurricane Sandy Toy Drive.   Hope to see everyone there!!”

The Recreation Department would very much appreciate it if guests to the festivities will bring with them unwrapped gifts for children ages  2 through teens.
