Join us for the 29th Annual Tree Lighting and Visit with Santa Sunday, Dec. 4th at the Gazebo on Main St. The tree lighting marks the official start of the holiday season in Chester.
The West Morris Mendham Brass Ensemble under the direction of Gabriel Stephens will be providing live music beginning at 5pm, and the Treble Makers, an all female a cappella group from West Morris Mendham High School under the direction of Patty Danner, will sing lively tunes to get you into the holiday spirit.
Also featured at this event will be the lighting of the annual tree and, of course, a visit from Santa Claus himself. On hand will also be Miss New Jersey, United States 2016 serving as Santa’s helper.
