As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and negatively impact our businesses, the Business Community has evaluated the feasibility of sponsoring and executing the events we had planned through the remainder of this year. Taking into consideration community safety; the ability to control large crowds; our ability to enforce social distancing and wearing masks; raising the funds needed to produce the events; and adhering to current Executive Orders limiting the number of attendees, we have, unfortunately, concluded that we will be unable to sponsor, plan, and execute the Holiday Festival this year. Thank you for your continuing support of our businesses.
The Holiday Festival, featuring the Christmas Walk, International Celebrations, and fireworks, will be held on Friday, Nov. 27
The New Providence Business Community and the borough have teamed up once again to host the annual Holiday Festival. This event will take place in downtown New Providence on Friday evening, Nov. 27 from 5 – 7 PM. Businesses will be open the next day with specials and offers for Small Business Saturday.
In addition to the traditional Christmas Walk and Santa’s arrival at Provident Bank with the marching band, the Holiday Festival will feature winter celebrations and customs from around the world, entertainment, activities, giveaways, ice sculptures, a train, a giant snow globe, and lots more! The evening will culminate with a fantastic fireworks show sponsored by NP Fuel. Local businesses are also participating with entertainment, free treats, and fun! Event activities will be located in the Village Shopping Center, along Springfield Ave., and in the Adams Shopping Center.
