Now that Thanksgiving 2012 is history, holiday celebrations in Mahwah can officially begin. The first is a tree lighting ceremony this Sunday.
From the Mahwah Recreation Department:
Tired of the stormy weather? Santa is just the right cure for Sandy. Mahwah's Annual Tree Lighting Festival will be held on Sunday, December 2 at 5 p.m. in the Senior Center at Town Hall, 475 Corporate Drive. The Joyce Kilmer Choir will entertain at 4:45 p.m. with a selection of Holiday tunes. Refreshments will be served and Santa will have gifts for all his little friends who come to meet him.
The township is also planning a Menorah lighting and Chanukah Celebration at town hall the following Monday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. The event is being sponsored by the Chabad of Northwest Bergen County.
