Closter Tree Lighting

December 6, 2018 @ 6:00 pm


Closter’s Annual TREE LIGHTING at the Closter Borough Hall

Friends, families and neighbors are all invited to enjoy the annual Tree Lighting on Thursday, December 6th at 6:00 p.m. in the front of the Closter Borough Hall.

Closter’s Improvement Commission welcomes all with songs and music. This year’s special guest, Santa Claus, will be arriving in the Wells Fargo stagecoach,drawn by a team of draft horses. This festive gathering is sure to bring a holiday spirit to town!

Once again the Blue Chip Chorus, Tenakill Middle School students and NJ Harvest Church will be singing, the Good Neighbor Ministry Orchestra will be playing (in the Closter Senior Center) and a D.J. will be on hand with music for all.

Closter Cub Scouts and Girls Scouts will be leading a few songs and carols in celebration of the Christmas and Hanukkah season. The Borough would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Lupardi Family, who year after year, insures our tree has lights. No “bah hum bugs” here!
