Holiday Greetings from Woodbridge!

Holiday Parade with Santa

Christmas Tree Lighting & Holiday Festival... Barron Arts Center...  Fri., Dec. 2 at 5:00 PM

Town Hall just received a special news bulletin from the North Pole announcing that Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive in Woodbridge on Fri., Dec. 2 at 5:00 PM just in time to ”light-up” the official Woodbridge Township Christmas Tree at the Barron Arts Center (582 Rahway Avenue).  The annual tree lighting and holiday ceremony features seasonal holiday selections performed by the award-winning Woodbridge High School Choir and the Woodbridge High School Marching Band.  Following the tree lighting program, the Barron Arts Center opens to the region’s largest holiday train show and exhibit.  The holiday train display has become the singular “stop” for the ‘Season of Giving’ food drive.  This year, the Barron Arts Center holiday train display is “on track” until December 30 (closed on Dec. 25 & 26.)  If you’re stopping by to see the incredible train exhibit, plan to drop-off a food donation at the holiday express.

See You Around Town,
