The 2018 Holiday Festival was a wonderful event attended by thousands of residents and visitors who braved the freezing weather to enjoy the festivities. There was lots of entertainment, including international holiday tents, strolling carolers, NPHS Marching Band hot pretzels, fire dancers, glow cotton candy, popcorn, a stilt walker, balloon art, spin art, giant chair/photo ops with costumed characters, ice carvers, and lots of free giveaways from New Providence merchants. Santa was escorted through the festival on the NP fire truck by the amazing NPHS marching band, making stops on Springfield Ave. and the Village Shopping Center. The event was capped off by a spectacular fireworks show sponsored by NP Fuel!
This fun, free, fantastic event would not have been possible without the generous support of our local merchants and sponsors: NP Fuel, Braunschweiger Jewelers, Clear Point Designs, Downtown Improvement District, JCP&L, Lantern Hill, Lassus Wherley, NJ Sharing Network, Orangetheory Fitness, and the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
We would like to thank everyone for attending and appreciate the feedback from those who contacted us.
See you again next year!
